Question about 2002 Saturn VUE
I have a similar problem. It seems to start at about 20mph and then diminishes (or gets drowned out) once I get up to 50+mph. I've had it checked twice and both times the technician couldn't hear the noise. I've read some stuff that says it could be either brakes, tires, or bearings. It doesn't seem that it is any of these - at least I'm assuming that the tech checked them out. I am very frustrated and I don't want to wait until something really breaks before having it fixed - especially becuase it is still under warranty.
Sounds like wheel bearing issues. I've had my front wheel bearings replaced twice on an 02 Vue AWD V-6. The 02-07 Vues use the same wheel bearings and they are a known issue with these
cars. Another problem with these cars is the rear support bearing for the drive shaft in the AWD models. I recommend having the wheel bearings and rear carrier bearing checked out. Good luck.

Most times it is the kind of tire you use.steel belted tires will do this.
