At times I have a clunking noise on the drivers side. sounds like around the brakes. And noise appears when turning. Everything has been checked by 3 mechanics, including Honda. Cannot find anything. Could it be the brake callipers?

    I don't suspect the calipers are making noise, as they are anchored pretty much solid. Brake pads, if not shimmed properly, may move in the calipers causing some noise, but probably not the clunking you mention.

    I would look at compliance bushings or possibly a steering gear mount issue. All a shot in the dark, but a good physical inspection by a shop willing to take some extra time is all it takes.

    Good luck,
    -Dave
