Still having this problem. just took it in yesterday for the 3rd time. They say they don't see anything wrong. The 2nd time I had it in there they claimed the rack bolts were lose. They tightened them and oh my gosh what a difference. It drove like a brand new car. Now 1,000 miles later clunking, squeak over bumps and dips in the road, along with a steering wheel that shakes has returned. I also hear the clunking and almost sounds like a hear a rattle under the driver floor board frequently. This supposedly luxury vehicle drives like a piece of crap. Very frustrated
My car making a noise every time i hit a rough road or every time i hit a bump
Popping and clunking in left front wheel when going over bumps, quick stops and turns. The noise seems to go away when you lightly hold the brakes when doing the mentioned. Infinity recommended a complete brake job that was not covered by warranty. They did replace the left front brake caliper under warranty. We have had the truck in the shop 3 times for the same issue. This next week will be the fourth time. They seem to resolve the problem for a couple of months and then it returns. I can't imagine a car needing new brakes and calipers at 28,000 miles. We will see what their next plan of action will be.

The Clunking and Popping noises are heard. Have taken the vehicle to the dealership. It's made to believe that it's not an issue. Frustrating.
When driving over the tiniest bump or crack it feels like the tires might come off. ( rough ride). Also squeaky breaks when slowing Down.
