Squeaking sound and feel when turning the wheel. Wasn't fixed. Told the whole steering column would have to be removed.
Constant squeak, more like plastic rubbing together and not metal. It is coming from the steering column and does not matter if you turn the wheel or not...constant squeak.
When it first starts is squeaks and when I shift it from reverse to to drive I hear a loud clunking in my trunk
I hear a very loud obnoxious squeeking coming from my steering wheel / suspension whenever I turn or go over a bump. I just bought the car used and within a week this was happening. the sales guys must have known of a mickey mouse just long enough to sell in
