Cricket Noise

Asked by Dec 19, 2015 at 06:37 PM about the 2015 Scion xB 5-Door

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It sounds like it's coming from the drivers side
front tire. Anyways when I'm driving on the road
with minor bumps, etc I hear a chirping/creaking
sound. I noticed it when I was driving with the radio
off. When I'm driving on smooth surfaces I don't
hear a thing, only on uneven/bumpy roads.

Do you have hub caps by any chance? If so they may make some noise on bumpy roads.

Naw man, alloy wheels.

I was gonna take it to the shop, since I got that warranty. But I guess I'll just wait till I do my oil change and I'll let the techs know then

Maybe it is the suspension creaking.

Man that would be some shit if it's true, had the car for only 5 months. Hopefully the warranty covers it

Jack the car up where that front wheel is off of the ground an inch or so. Take a rubber mallet and beat the heck out of the tire to see if you can duplicate the noise. You can also hit around some of the suspension parts. Or....take it back to the dealership as it is still under warranty. Please let us know what you find.
