dragging sound while in motion


Hi, I have a 2007 Mazda 6 with 85,000 miles. Today when I put it in reverse it made a dragging sound (similar to muffler rubbing ground). The same sound was made going forward. Upon observation, nothing was dragging on the ground. Has anyone had any type of problem like this occur? TIA

Something stuck in one of the tires or came loose and is not rubbing one of the tires?

If I were to venture a guess, you have an issue with your brakes. Ethier rusty disc from sitting, or worn pads which need replacing.

Just had new brakes done last year, hope it is as simple as something wedged up there

It is also possible one of the bolts has loosened and is rubbing the wheel. I would narrow it down to a side and pull the wheel.

Quite possibly a splash guard around one of the rotors. Depending on the type of wheels that you have, you may be able to see where it's rubbing against the rotor and correct the problem through the spokes.

ask someone to walk next to your car when it moves, so that you can at least determine where noise is coming from.
