About to buy a 2006 Pontiac G6. love the car, but it is EXTREMELY noisy while driving and also when turning right. car is so quiet you can't even hear the engine running, but when driving, the noise makes me crazy. Hubby said something about bearings?

this seems to be the only problem -- noisy? very frustrating -- haven't had a car newer than 1994 EVER, so I'm really excited about this adorable red car. price is only $1500 -- maybe $500 to have a mechanic do the wheel bearings? I just don't know!!!

Most likely wheel bearings. It just needs to be determined which wheel is making the noise. as you put more force on one side of the vehicle the failed bearing will make more noise. as you turn the other direction and unload the failed bearing the noise goes away. Cheers

IF that's what the noise is,but really needs to be driven and inspected by a good mechanic
