Asked by airforceguy21 Sep 30, 2013 at 05:55 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So me and my wife have a 2006
equinox we bought certified pre
owned with a clean history. We've
had it for a few months and made a
trip from Portland OR to OK a few
weeks ago and it never gave us
trouble. But I've always noticed a
constant humming noise it makes in
the front, along with a slight
continuous vibration. Now it's
nothing severe and nothing really
seems to change the way it sounds
or vibrates. It's almost like I'm driving
with those big truck tires with the
extra tred on them. I don't know if it's
just me being paranoid since I just
spent a grand repairing my other car
with bad ball joints and cv axles.
What I can closely relate the noise to
is a bad wheel bearing but it's not as
severe and the humming is just
enough to annoy you not cause for
alert. Is that just what equinoxes do?
Not drive as smooth as other cars?
Or is it maybe a strut problem or
somthing?

It could very well be a wheel bearing, I believe that these rigs you have to replace the hub assembly.

im having the same problem with mine, I know its not the wheel bearings as I just had those replaces a few months ago. Did you find out what it was?

Try replacing the tire with new ones. It happened to me and I just replaced to ALL SEASON Tires.
