A chirping or squeaking noise may be noted from the front of the vehicle when traversing bumps at low speeds. Our technicians tell us this type of noise is generally caused by the front strut mounts which will require replacement.

    occasional noise from front end when going over bump or driving slowly. have not had it checked yet as still paying off timing chain replacement. seems to repair anything on this vehicle is expensive.

    A squeaking sound coming from the front passenger side of my 2011 CX-7 as I am driving. I do not notice any obvious bumps that I am driving over. The noise is not constant but it is nerve raking because I cannot figure out where it is coming from. I took the vehicle to the service department at the dealership. They drove it but told me they did not hear the squeak. They told me to bring it back if the sqeaking gets worse.
