Clicking noise from steering column. Needs column to be replaced. Parts on order.
New steering column ordered from US arrived and was fitted by dealer.
Recurrence of the clicking sound from steering column when turning. Not confident that it won't return again. Squeaking suspension strut (car was sounding like a ten year old taxi with 750,000km on the clock). Shop couldn't reproduce the problem (naturally). Probably some ice stuck in it that melted when it sat in the shop for repair of the steering noise.
Loose rods in the steering made knocking noise. Rods re-aligned and tightened.
Recurrence of noise from steering column when turning at slow speeds. Same as Problem 1 Trip 1 but this time the parts ordered had arrived and were installed.
Awful squeaking from rear left suspension strut. Sounded like an old taxi. Now quiet thankfully.
Recurrence of noisy steering pump. Told it needed replacing, so it was done! Bit worrying for a car less than three years old.
Clicking noise heard upon turning steering wheel and hitting bumps. Steering column and upper strut mounts replaced. Noises are no longer heard.
Noticed whine in power steering pump. Power steering fluid was low, no leaks found.
Grinding noise while turning, dealer replaced steering gear and tie rods. TSB.
When turning the steering wheel there is clicking noises. Not sure if it comes from the steering wheel or if it's something in the suspension or somewhere that would be effected when turning.
Took to Chevy dealer (Saturn dealer closed) for a clunking noise in the steering rack observed only when cold. Dealer says that GM is developing a TSB to repair, and that it's not a safety issue. Dealer will call back when GM provides the TSB.
Clunk in the steering when cold. Dealer replaced steering rack at no charge under Saturn extended warranty.
Shaking and excessive bouncing noticed when going over bumps or at highway speed. Found that the right rear shock absorber was leaking fluid. Part not covered under extended warranty so I purchased and replaced both rear shocks myself.
