I understand.

I know this thread is a bit old, but I was wondering...

I started hearing a kind of low, rotational squealing - not a high pitched squeal, but almost a "hum" - "whumm... whumm... whumm" that would change based on my speed coming from the front of the car. I had a suspicion of a bad wheel bearing at first.

I just put on my snow tires/wheels and I took the opportunity to try and "wiggle" the wheels to see if I could find the bearing that was going. None wiggled at all - rock solid. I did notice that it seemed like my brake pads were still engaged and the rotor was hard to spin. I wiggled the rotor and kind of moved everything around. It all seemed to loosen up and now the noise seems mostly gone when I drive. It might still be there - it's faint enough to question whether I'm hearing it or not.

Am I seeing "warped" (uneven pad material deposition on the) rotors? Is that what I've been hearing?

I'm out of bumper to bumper by a long shot, but would this be something the dealer would look at under powertrain warranty?

My replacement rotors were covered under the powertrain warranty at 60k+ miles. It's worth a discussion with your dealer.
