Fiat 500 loudness while driving?

Asked by TrippyyKittyy Oct 18, 2018 at 08:53 PM about the 2015 FIAT 500 Pop

Question type: General

I’ve had my 2015 fiat 500 for a couple years
now as my first owned car, and I love it.
However, I’ve been worrying about the
loudness inside the cabin while I’m driving. It
isn’t a particular noise, it’s just a very loud
constant sound and some vibration. It seems
to get louder at certain speeds, like when I’m
driving at 55 the noise is very loud but when I
get up to 62 the noise subsides. The noise
gets very loud when I slow down and start to
brake. I’ve just gotten it inspected and the
only thing that was wrong was that my
brakes would need to be replaced soon. Not
sure if this would cause it. I’m just wondering
if anyone else has experienced this or knows
what causes this or if it’s just how it runs.
Thank you.

Hi! You’ve probably figured this out by now but it may be your tires and shocks - at least it was with my 500e! I failed to check the tires as my car never needs servicing and they were virtually bald! With new tires it’s back to its quiet fun self! Thanks & best of luck!

Rear wheel bearings are a common issue. About $90 labor part $150-$300 range for part. Very simple DIY project. Bob G

I’m having the same issue with my 500. It get so loud above 60 but quiets back down at 80 (don’t judge). When I’m slightly turning right it is the same but when I turn slightly going around a curve the noise goes away. If you want to see the video you can text me your email and I will send it. Four two five. Three nine nine. One five three six.

Anyone have an answer to this? My Fiat 500 is doing the same. It gets so loud when running at high speeds. It sometimes goes away for a few minutes and then comes back. Has nothing to do with engine rpm. Sometimes, when accelerating, it gets louder, and sometimes when taking my foot off of the gas it gets louder. It must have something to do with the rotation of the wheels. It's so loud that I can't even determine which wheel or wheels it's coming from. It's just a deafening noise.
