Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at Adam, Wheel bearing usually cause a growling noise that gets louder when you turn left or right. You might want to have the brakes checked. If the vehicle has center caps on the wheels these might be causing the noise, if not you should have the suspension checked by a professional. You should alway make sure you take your car to an authorized Lexus dealer or to an ASE certified technician, and you can find one in your area by going here: Good Luck!
