Hi folks, on my way back from Seattle to my place here in the SF Bay Area I noticed a howling noise from under and to the rear of the car. This is my first Subaru as well as all wheel drive. Normally I drive BMW's and would check the rear end if this kinda thing happened. But now I'm dealing with AWD so I need a little help. Of course I'm going to have a mechanic check it out but I'm curious about other peoples experience with this issue. What is the usual diagnosis and repair cost's?

Possibly a wheel bearing. My car makes a howling noise and I was told it was the wheel bearing, which isn't a big fix. I was told over $100 but less than $400 by mechanic, because they need to look at all of them to see which one needs to be fixed. Hope this helped.
