problem #4

  • Automatic transmission

: the contact stated that the front end of the vehicle made a consistent, loud squeaking noise. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the hood was lubricated and adjusted. The repair was not successful in fixing the problem. Also, when the brakes were depressed, the vehicle lurched forward. The service dealer was unable to determine the cause of the brake problem. Updated 9/20/2006 - the vehicle's brake booster and front suspension also made noise.
