Have had intermittent cracking noise in steering column or rack and pinion. Dealer has looked for the cause of the problem on two occasions but could not pinpoint the problem. Otherwise trouble free.
Took my Prius in to the service department again to diagnose a cracking noise and sensation that can be felt in the steering wheel. It is an intermittent problem and as with the two other times I have taken the car in it didn't make a sound for the techni
I located the cause of the cracking noise in my steering column by myself. The plastic in the dash must be rubbing on the column. Adjusting the wheel up and down eliminates the problem.
Front wheel bearing needed replacement - many potholes in MA are hard to see at night.
When tires were replaced on 8/21/09, an alignment was performed during which the technician noted excessive toe-in on the right rear wheel that would have to be shimmed to be corrected. No uneven wear at this point, so no shimming will be done yet.
