WE HAVE A SWIFT WITH ABOUT 220,000 MILES...STILL A GREAT CAR..JUST IN THE LAST WEEK WE HAVE NOTICED OCCASIONAL SHORT FAIRLY LOUD BURSTS OF BUZZ, LIKE CARDS HITTING BIKES SPOKES FAST...IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE IN A WHILE, LASTS A COUPLE OF SECONDS AND THEN GONE....I CHECKED THE TRUNK FOR LOOSE ITEMS VIBRATING BUT FOUND NOTHING...CRAWLED AROUND UNDER CAR AND CAME UP WITH NO IDEAS...
ANYONE HAVE A IDEA...??


WE PLAN ON DRIVING THIS GUY TO AT LEAST 250,000 MILES...YES WE DO....

Could be a wheel bearing going bad, or the exhaust system rubbing against the inside of the tire. Does it seem to happen in turns?

No....just going down the road and all of a sudden....about a 2 second burst....I jacked up the rear and wiggled both tires...no play at all....spun them and the passenger showed a little rubbing...guess it was shoes against the drum...driver side was quiet..... Looked the exhaust over from front to back and found nothin that would rub or bump....? ? ? ?

Ignore the spam post above from hanr. If you're running stock rims and tires I don't think it would be wheel rub. How old is the exhaust? it may be a baffle in the muffler or possibly the cat. If you say it's from the rear I would suspect the muffler baffle. Wheel bearings tend to make noise in cornering first when they start to go.
