    This sounds like a failing front wheel bearing. Have the shop check them out!

    My car was making that exact same noise, I took it to two places who had no idea what it was until I brought it in for recall on spark plug and THEY told me, both front hub bearings are so bad your car is borderline unsafe to drive..got it fixed and it's not making the noise anymore

    Im having the SAME issue with my 2007 Honda Civic! It started a few months back and just seems to be getting louder. Sounds like its comming from the back. Only stops when im making and hard right turn or occasionally when i go over a large bump. Confused. I got my car through Carmax and have total coverage and GAP insurance. Hopefully they cover that. But now hearing what you huys have posted, i now have better knowledge of what the problem may be!
