Asked by Josh Jan 03, 2010 at 10:57 PM about the 1999 Subaru Impreza

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 1999 Impreza CZ Sport with the 5 speed manual and the SRX rims etc and i have a bad problem with road noise when travelling at low speeds. It is a kind of roaring or chafing sound and at 40kmh the car sounds like a plane and it drowns out the stereo which is annoying. Its not pleasant to drive with and any help would be great!
