A squeak may be heard from the base of the steering column while turning the steering wheel. The noise may be coming from the lower seal on the steering shaft. Lubrication of the seal will commonly correct this problem.Google+

After about 5000 miles, my 2012 Chrysler 300c began to make a soft, low-pitched "groan" when the steering wheel was turned. This would only happen after the car was warm by either use or sunshine.
Problem fixed temporarily by dealer who subricated "both boot shafts" in the steering. ans of now, 3-days later the prblem is beginning to return. Disappointed, but the car is GREAT in every other respect - (so far).

Yea, we pay $50,000 for these tin cans only to listen to the steering groan every time we turn the steering wheel. Had my steering column replaced, then not long after the groan returns. You can bet the dealers will discount these cars when you try to trade them in. And guess what, Chrysler want you to purchase their extender warranty.
when i am driving and make a turn left and right and also parallel parking the car squeaks bad on the outside
