Thank you, again, Mr. Unabomber, Sir. Your FAQ pages, once again, have made my life much, much easier and have made me a bit wiser.

Default 08' WRX Hatchback wheel bearing issue??

Hello everyone,

I'm brand new to the Subaru community as well as posting in a forum. I just bought an 08' WRX hatchback with 76k miles. After driving it awhile and getting to know the car I notice a humming noise that occurs between ~40-45 mph and then it goes away. The noise seems to be coming from the front passenger side. The noise does not increase or decrease during turning. It also slightly pulls to the left during freeway speeds. I have read a lot of other forums and most are recommending the issue to be a bad wheel bearing. Any thoughts on what else it might be? Also, if I should take it to a dealership or to a local auto shop? Would like to save some money, but not if it will sacrifice quality of work.

Very excited to be a Subaru owner,and have been wanting one since I was younger.

Thanks for any replies!

Not really the right thread for the question, but, if you have a local shop you trust, they may save you some money. It's really a personal preference kind of thing.

Be aware that your 2015, with direct injection, is a whole different animal, and that a lot of the information may not be applicable.
