I hope this is in the right thread! I have a 2005 TB 6 cyl, 218,000 miles. Always well maintained. Runs fine, shifts fine but there's a noise when driving. It's not there at low speeds but the faster the rpm's go the more noise I hear. It's coming front the front. Not loud, nobody turns to see where the noise is coming from when I drive by, almost a hum or soft vibration. I can feel it in the steering wheel as well. We are thinking the hub but aren't sure. I would like to take it to a mechanic with at least an idea of what it may be so I don't get taken for a ride.

Sounds like a front hub bearing is on the way out. Does it do it while turning? Usually if you are making a right turn and it makes noise, it will be the left bearing. If you are making a left turn and it makes noise it will be the right bearing. The load is on the opposite side of the direction you are turning.

Mine never was worse when turning. Mine would vibrate bad between about 25-40 mph. Slower or faster wasn't too bad... could happen at any speed though depending on how the bearings are deformed.
