Just purchased a Chrysler 300 used - it only has 20,000 miles and so far I love the car. However, when I start the car and make slow speed turns there is a loud noise. Took it to the Chrysler dealership they heard the noise and checked another 2012 found that it also made the noise. Could not determine what the problem was, I am not satisfied and will have further test done.
I have noticed for the past 2 to 3 weeks, whenever I turn left into a parking space, I hear a noise from the steering call it a groan, a grind like sound. I feel it in the steering wheel as well. Today, I noticed the same thing as I was turning right into a parking space. The noise now is louder and more worrisome to me. The car is over 8 years old but has extremely low mileage.
