Whirring started suddenly today, 90 degrees out, cut off all air/radio closed windows still obvious sound at highway speeds which decreased as I slowed and stopped. Upon acceleration started back up again at around 30-35 mph. No skip felt in transmission. Oil air and cabin filters, new battery installed last 60 days. New tires last 90 days. Approx 68k miles on car, all highway miles, 100 mile work commute each day. Bought used at 36k in jan2013. All maintenance except last oil change done at dealership.
At 231k miles, Power steering return line replaced by dealer. Same dealer, at 246k miles, now saying need power steering rack replaced, $1200+. should I question this repair, given that they just worked on power steering 3 months ago?
I drive 100 mi commute each day. Religious about tire/oil/brake maintenance. Starting to have very expensive repairs. At what point do I cut my losses. Also have 2001 Accord with over 286k miles. Need both cars and need to replace one or the other, which year has best performance records for both the newer Accords and the newer Camrys, and which one should I keep and continuing servicing.
