I've had too numerous to mention. But because I would like to sell I don't want to give out too much info here. There are so many times my steering has locked up. If not for the grace of god.... my brakes well, they just have a mind of their own. It doesn't happen often that they go out but I can think of 2 specific incidents if another car was coming through the intersection I would have been history. One thing that I've had it in the shop for many times is that lamp light on my dashboard. I take it in. They fix it. Im not out of the parking lot and its on again. My car is a 2007, garage kept, leather seats, sun roof, sirius fm, and just turned 40K. Its my baby. I hate to part with it but its a death trap.

When driving my 2007 Pontiac Vibe it makes a loud noise in the front end and it is continuous while you are driving. It sounds like something just roaring going down the road. I have had my rotors changed, brakes changed, brake calipers changed, wheel bearings changed, and new brake lines installed, and my axles and suspension checked out and the noise still want go away. Has anyone else had this problem. Because I feel as if it is a hazard about to happen. Has anyone else had the same problem.
