Squeaky steering wheel?
 
Anyone experience a squeaky steering wheel? Been annoying me for a good two weeks and so I'm having it checked today. Foreman says its normal but will check and try to make it go away. Adjusting the steering column in any direction doesn't help either.

Tell the foreman to stay off the crack. A squeaking steering wheel is not normal. Otherwise they would all squeak. Shame on him/her.

I had a similar (I think) creaking noise. Car is in for repair now, I was told that they are replacing some under carriage parts which were backordered. I will let you know specifically when I get the car back (soon I hope).

Sweet. they actually did track it down. Its nice to see that your dealer took the time and did the right thing.

Got my car back today after one week at dealer. They used a device called "Chassis ears" to find the noise. They replaced the both tension struts (left and right). Seems to have solved the noise problem. While there, they replaced a leaking vacuum pump.
