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.
Popping noise coming from front end. From driver seat sounds like in right front area. Techs have told me intermediate shaft is bad and if replaced will do again after a few more miles . Very aggravating when driving on a street going 35-40 mph and hear this popping noise. Still not fixed.

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