Hi, there:
My name is Robert and this is my first time to be here. I appreciate everybody's help. This afternoon, I was test driving a 1999 Sentra with 80 K mile. When the speed is above 40 mph, I can feel a kind of abuzz noise from the drive train, possibly from the hub. The noise is just like the sound comes out from an old electric fan. I am sure this is not from the engine because when I place the drive stick at neutral and let the car coast, the noise is still there. Since this is my first time to drive a Sentra, I am just wondering whether this kind of noise is normal or an indication of something wrong.

Thanks
Rob

Well I would say this is not normal.
Could be many things, tires, bearings come to mind.( yes u r right, drive train and final drive)
Since its not yours it would be difficult to diagnose.
I would first examine tires, swap back to front.
Inspect CV joints
Jack up and inspect wheels bearings, spin wheels for clues.
bargain down the price !!!
