How to describe a car approaching the character?

1

In a story, A woman is walking alongside the road. How would you describe a car Pulling up beside her? I thought about maybe she heard the cars (muffler?) Or some part of the car that makes noise (on older cars) when driving. Help?

Well, first decide what road you want the girl to be walking on. Is she on a sidewalk by a busy highway? A place where there is gravel or something on the side of the road that would make noise? A dirt road? A gravel road? A regular paved road that isn't a main highway?From there, come up with adjectives for the sounds.For example: The girl was walking along the road when all of a sudden she heard the sound of a car approaching on the road behind her. Thinking that it would just pass, she doesn't pay any attention to it, that is, until the sound of the engine got closer and the sound of the tires crunching on the rocks near her made her speed up slightly. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw the car pull up next to her, and wondered just who was inside.(probably a bad example, but its what i could do in just a few minutes. I want to be a writer so. ^.^)

I would do something along the lines of the crunching of gravel as the car tyres pulled along the shoulder of the road...makes it sound a bit more ominous.

Hi guys. My friend offers to buy me a car and deliver using this company https://www.a1autotransport.com/freight/. But I have a lot of questions. What about the auction fee? And the payment for the services of a dealer in the USA? Delivery in the USA? And fractals of the place in the container? And the tow truck from the port? What about spare parts? And the repair? Is it worth it to buy a car in another country and then bring it to us? What can you tell about this? Thanks)

People that have always paid cash for a vehicles in the past, learn more but now want to upgrade to a newer one or are forced to take out automobile loan because they do not have the cash funds to buy a vehicle at present
