On 4-28-06 I was backing out of my drive way and turned the steering wheel and heard a clicking and a popping noise. As I proceeded to drive getting up speed to about 45 mph, our road has slight bumps in it, I heard the same noise. This problem has continued but is now louder, it is in the front end. I have only had the car three months as of today 6-24-06. So the first week of may '06 I took the car back to the dealership where I got it they kept the car for three days and said there is nothing wrong I drove the mechanic in my car and he heard the same noise said keep driving it. I am a mechanic myself and know something is wrong I thought cv joints so I left. So I called the Chevrolet dealer in my town and ask if they would look at it and they have and said they didn't think anything major was going on and one mechanic said he thought it was a steering problem and he would have to take the steering wheel out and grease something, but they will look to ease my mind. Now yesterday I ran into a man who bought a '05 for his wife and I ask if he has had problems with his car clicking and popping in the front end and he said yes and took his to the same places I have and told him the same thing and if I find any thing wrong out to let him know and he will also complain. I don't feel safe at all and especially with my family in there also.
