Front passenger wheel squeals at high speed

Asked by Sep 28, 2009 at 12:29 PM about the 2009 Hyundai Sonata SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2009 Hyundai Sonata has been making a strange squealing or whistling noise from the front passenger tire only
when driving at 50 + MPI.  The sound goes away when I touch the brake and stops completely when I'm driving at less
than 50 MPI.  Can anyone help me with this and what it might mean?  Is it just from tread making noise on the tire or
is this something due to wind noise or something else?

Thanks for your help

Isn't your car under warranty? Bring it to the dealer and let them fix it dude!

The disc brake on that side could be slightly out of adjustment. If it's still under warranty take it to the dealer had have them look at it.

Check the owner's manual as to the indications the brakes need replacing. Many cars have a system to let you know the pads are worn to their maximum limit. You do not mention how many miles you have on the car. Break pads wear quickly in city traffic and your style of driving and quality of the materials. Another possibility is the wheel bearing. In any case I would not delay in finding out the reason for this noise. It could lead to further damage. An 09 Hyundai could still be under warranty but check the details as to what is covered. Brakes may not be. Bearings should be. Sorry for your troubles and good luck.

dude, check torque on. Lug nuts, uneven torque out koran spec can cause imbalance on pressure on caliper to disc causing wear, wobble Android etc
