I've recently noticed that I am hearing a low frequency hum or roar from the rear of our 2010 Edge SEL with about 77K miles.  It becomes noticeable around 30 mph and increases in volume as speed increases.  Does not occur with trans in Neutral and engine RPM increased.  No other indications or anomalies.  Could this be rear bearings starting to go bad?

 

thanks

Right rear wheel bearing.  Just guessing based on past experience and other reports.  But check the left one also.  Replace them both if you are able to do so.  Or wait and turn up the volume on the radio either way you will have to address it sooner or later.  Just remember once the noise stops you are in trouble.  That means you have no bearing left.

You should also check your tires.  When I got my Edge it needed 4 new tires and it made the same noise your are hearing.  macbwt is probably on the money but it wouldn't hurt to check.

One way to verify, if it's tires the noise should change depending on the road surface (asphalt vs concrete). Doubt it would change if it's a bearing.
