So my brakes have been squeaky on and off for a while. I’ve never been able to diagnose a single problem, and neither have the mechanics when I’ve had the car checked (very frustrating!). About a week ago, I began to notice another squeaking noise, but this wasn’t from the brakes (so I kind of think). It mostly starts when I’m going at/above 40 mph and drive over a small bump or something in the road. Not pothole size or anything large, just regular bumps that one would normally give no consideration to while driving. It seems to be coming from the back left side, and has a different sound/pitch from the regular brake squeak (which is very loud and very clear). The new noise is hard to hear, and occurs with seemingly no particular reason sometimes, unless obviously a bump in the road. I took it in today, but they found nothing. So, more frustration at a lack of answers, once more.
However, I don’t think they heard it how I hear it. The mechanic was older, and when I test drove it, I could hear it a few times, but the guy seemed to thing it was something else or irrelevant. So, I guess we’ll see if something gets worse over the next few weeks… Hopefully not (I don’t want to spend any more money) but I don’t like the sound of things.
