A honk, hiss, or groan noise may be noted from the steering during low speed parking lot maneuvers. Our technicians tell us that replacing the power steering return hose may correct this concern, If it does not the steering rack and pinion may require replacement.

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.
