Q: The steering wheel makes a slight squishy noise when cold. What could this be? on 2005 Kia Sedona

The squeeky noise is slight and only occurs occasionally, usually when its wet or cold outside and is not always noticeable and has not affected the driving of the car. The sound is directly beneath the steering wheel and occors when I turn the wheel, but not always. Can you tell me the possible causes and potential costs for repair? Thank you so much.

Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com

There is a service bulletin regarding this complaint/concern, but it pertains to vehicles used or exposed to areas where heavy road salt is used. Customers have noticed increased steering effort and noise from the steering column intermediate shaft for 2002-2005 Sedona. The increased effort is usually first noticed at low speeds with noise and or rattle. There is a updated part to address this concern. The cost to install this updated part if that is the source of the noise is about $267.72 . Hope this is of help. Vaughn @ Auto Japan
