New Owner with some issues

Well Lets see. My name is Derek and i am located in Oklahoma. I have been looking for a new daily driver and came across a 09 White Hot g8. Its not a gt but i dont need another performance ride. Car was a good deal but i am having issues with a vibration and humming coming from the passenger front. When i test drove the car taking a corner there was vibration turning and when braking at highway speeds. well the dealership turned the rotor and the car was back on the road and no vibration. Well now 2 weeks later the vibration is back and now there is a humming sound when turning to the right... I have a lot of mechanical knowledge but the wife doesn't want me messing with a new and warranty car. I was hoping i could get some info on this situation so i know what im looking for when it goes in for repairs. so any help would be great..

Sounds like it could possibly a wheel bearing. A bad wheel bearing could cause the rotor to get out of alignment plus it would cause a humming sound on turns. That's something to consider anyway. Good luck and post what happens. I just got a White Hot g8 gt 2 weeks ago. Larry in Texas.
