2003 Pontiac Vibe Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 012009

Vibe AWD 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

when the vibe reaches 25 mph a whining sound can be heard from the rear of auto.

The pitch increases as speed increases. The wheel bearings were checked . Then it was isolated to the rear differential. This is where the fluid was contaminated with metal shavings. This problem has not been corrected , and I now have to take it to the dealer.
