Driver's side loud squeaking noise at any speed. Local mechanic had difficulty finding the problem, but I searched here and this sounds likely, since they have checked out wheel bearings, rotated tires and checked all assemblies for problems, and found nothing wrong. The loud squeaking noise is getting worse.
