the squeaking sound occurred as early as 15K mileage when i turned the wheel.
the dealer replaced the entire column at no cost to me with warranty but within 2 months, about 20K mileage, the problem resurfaced again. the dealer wanted to replace the column again (again at warranty at no cost to me) but i declined and decided to let the problem stand. the car is 153K mileage, still squeaking noises.
