Humming noise on a 2011 Cadillac SRX 2wd performance


Asked by May 06, 2018 at 03:38 PM about the 2011 Cadillac SRX Performance FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Cadillac SRX 2wd sport
with 84,000 miles on it. It makes a
humming noise while driving it. The
noise gets faster and slower depending
on the speed. It sounds like big truck
tires going down the road. There us no
where or grooves in the rotors.

Maybe just tire noise. Tires do tend to get noisier as they wear.


I have similar problem with my srx 2011.....loud humming noise after automatic transmission finishes last gear...seems like sound of car not quite in the final gear but when I put in neutral while driving it still makes loud I am perplexed..did u find out what sound is?

Did any of you ever find out what this was? My 2012 SRX is doing the same thing.

You have a wheel bearing that needs doubt....when driving if you turn the wheel sharply to the right or left you’ll notice sound’s the bearing opposite of the direction you turned the wheels...I think...but you definitely have a bearing needing replacing...proabably about $500 repair...good luck...mine was under extended warranty I purchased....

Changed the bearing on mine twice noise getting loudet

any one figuer this out yet? Definitely not the wheel bearing change toe in noise changes


I think it’s in the 4 wheel drive. Some trucks I drive sound like that when 4 wheel drive is engaged. My moms caddy 2009 cts4 is making the sound now. Low or deep sound that goes with the speed of the car ! ?

It turned out to be the bearing needing to be rid of noise completely...been driving it for about a year since and car is like cotton on ice

I hope you are right because i know exactly what you are talking about, mine just started doing it a week ago sound like rubber rubbing plastic and faster you go the faster it sounds. at around 10 to 30 mph you dont hear it as much. At 35 40 it starts i thought my tire was rubbing on the firewall at first

2012 SRX exactly the same noise above 10MPH, changed out the right rear wheel bearing no difference. put the right rear bearing on the right front. no difference. checked the left rear bearing, that seemed fine so i left it in place. the driverside wheel bearing is stuck in the axle and i was not able to get it off yet. i dont have any play in any of the bearings and left to right turns dont make any difference on the noise. no clunking or other noises. i will have to get the drivers side bearing replaced to see if that fixes it.
