Creaking in Bolt EV Steering

10721 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Gainking
We've had our Bolt going on 3 months and have had what sounds like a creaking noise coming from the front since we got it. It's audible at low speeds and appears to be related to the steering (when stopped and I turn the wheel, the noise is heard). Anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks all. I do plan to take it to the dealer - just haven't had time. We live in VT with lots of dirt roads and slow speeds (35mph) so while driving slow you can hear it, especially as you come to a stop. It's not a high pitch squeak - more like the last "erk" or two of a closing door in a horror movie. I can reproduce it by just turning the wheel when stopped. I've also heard it as people and our dogs have gotten out of the car. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen.

I'll update after I get it looked at.
Not many speed bumps in VT unless you consider potholes and washout ditches. I was first able to reproduce the noise by turning the wheel, while parked in the garage, but now agree it's probably a suspension issue. I hope to stop at the dealer early next month to see what they say.
