Hi,

I've been to this forum before and found it really helpful. Got another question. I've noticed that whenever I make tight turns to the left, I hear a squeaking that does not sound like worn break pads. I've taken the car to the dealer and they tell me there's nothing wrong, but I hear a squeak that occurs too frequently to be normal. What am I hearing and what do I do. The squeak is not worn break pads and nothing else is wrong with the car. I don't hear the noise when turning to the right or when the turns are not tight. What do you suggest.

Does it only happen when the car has been driven for a while? Cruddy brake fluid getting warm and expanding, making the brakes touch a bit?

The squeaking happens in low speed tight turns to the left, not to the right, and I don't know why. I have had the dealer look at it and they tell me nothing's wrong, but I can't understand why the noise occurs. It's driving me nuts and at this point, I have no other recourse than to wait until something actually breaks, which is frustrating. The car's only two years old, so age is definitely not the issue. Any help?
