      Rumble while Accelling 2007 xc90

      I have a low rumble seemingly from the back of my XC90. Any idea what it might be? It seems to be present when accelerating and more noticeable while turning. Thanks!

      one of your wheel bearings? They tend to make more noise when pressure is applied such as turning or acceleration.

      Make sure it is the back ones as noise travels, had to replace our front left (replaced both front) recently around 103K miles

      need4spd made a great suggestion that it sounds like the bearing. To rule out another possibility, rotate tires in case one of them has a hidden nail or uneven wear that could also cause the noise.
