Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 HHR has a very loud hum coming from the front end that is sending a vibration thru the steering wheel. Has anyone had a similar issue and found it to be suspension related? I checked the plastics and found them to be in place and sufficiently tight.

No Answer for fixing. However, I have the same problem. My car eventually cut off completely. And won't crank. I had my starter rebuilt a few monts ago. It was running fine until about a week or two ago. Now it's sitting @my job. No crank/Light. Tried jump starting. No crank just clicking noise and the exterior and interior lights on strong. Faced in making a choice of towing to dealership [$$$$] or garage shop [$$$¿honest professional/crook?...] My uncle just got his car back from a hiding/ hostage situation after paying upfront... $1200 for hearter core on late model mercedes (late1900/ eary 2000) then $670+ more... w/promised completions (for 6 mos) moving car from shop in hiding. Received car back and had to be jumped when he got it back with dash lights out... whew!!... Dealer or Garage Shop? Dealership Warranty $$$$ or Garage Shop$$-$$-$$-$$ Warranty??? What did you eventually do?
