SOURCE: Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.

One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.

I had the same issue and had to replace the Hub Assembly on the passenger's side...a few months later I also had to replace the Hub Assembly on the Driver's side. My uncle is a mechanic and said it is not uncommon in the Malibu. I hope this helps! Now I am noise free, with the exception of the rattle coming from the dash since day one!

Well, that depends, do you have front-wheel drive or rear wheel drive? With front wheel drive, you most likely have a CV joint problem on the drive axle. The best way to find out how to do ANY repair to any make or model car is to buy (or borrow) a chilton or hanes manual from an auto parts store (or library). They are not very expensive and save you tons of money, by helping you fix the most common, and many uncommon problems, step-by-step.
