Front end noise on a 2006 HHR when you let off the gas Car drives fine, straight nothing bumpy. When you let off the accelerator it ticks the faster you go and let off gas pedal it gets louder. Is there problems with this vehicle doing this and what could it be? I have checked tire, brakes and it sound like it is coming from inside front transaxle.

Contact dealership for recalls. You could have a issue in the transmission or a loss or bad axle. Take it to a transmission shop and have them test drive it. They can also tell you if this is a common problem. It might be as simple as a mount.You say the sound come when you let off the accelerator, I would check the mounts also. Good luck!
