Average Mileage: 66,666 mi (47,000 mi - 101,000 mi)

The steering may develop a clunk type noise from the upper intermediate steering shaft.  Our technicians tell us that you should check with your local GM dealer to find out what the latest repair is for this condition.

  • My "clunk" noise called to dealer's attention repeatedly since 15K. I was tood then it was strut problem but was not a safety concern. Now, with 141K, it did not heal itself but is clunking MUCH more frequently. Also, front bearing now vibrating. My LeSabres would drive smoothly for 200K + or -.

    Guess it's time to move to another manufacturer after 8 new and 6 used GM vehicles.

    Grinding noise off and on in steering. Only when making a turn and usually in cold weather. Noise disappears shortly after driving.
