Weird noise.

When I'm driving at around 50 MPH, I can hear what I can only describe as a distant vibration that sounds like it's coming from the back of the car.

My tranny fluid is low so I'm going to add some today. If that's not it, any ideas on what it could be?

Re: Weird noise.

How old are the tires? It could be something else, but that's a place to start!

Re: Weird noise.

Could be a bad bearing which can be bad for you if a wheel falls off or it seizes while driving so I would check it soon. It can be tires but a simple rotation would tell you if it's that. It can also be brake calipers/pistons that are sticking and cause the pads/shoes to rub making for a vibration.

At least you no with a great deal of certainty it's not the driveshaft or rear differential, LOL.
