Hey guys, my 2013 has developed a squeal when I turn the steering wheel regardless if the cars moving or not. Kinda sounds like when you clean your windows at the gas station with the squeegee, that rubber against glass sound. Seems to be coming from deep under the dash. Any others have this issue?

I'm at 91k miles with a major guard warranty, so I'd like to get it addressed if its a warranty item. It's just always a pain in the rear getting into the service department. Thanks!

One of my 2013s just started doing the same thing. Not sure what it is.

I get a small rubbing sound when steering in one direction sometimes. However, I have lived with it for 20,000 miles. It is a pain getting to a service department 100 miles away, so I also did not address it with a mechanic.

My 2013 occasionally does the same thing. Usually in warmer weather, so not the situation where you are right now. I am at 50,000 miles. The noise went away on its own. I hope that it does for you, too.

Sounds like the slip rings in the steering wheel that transfer power to the horn and air bag.

All,
I too have experienced this issue. after going to PepBoys, they discovered this is a known issue.
The NHTSA Reference number is: 10078560
The Chevy TSB is: PI-0659-E
basically, the steering column is rubbing against other components.

If you take it to your dealer and you still have a bumper-to-bumper warranty, they will fix it for free
If your warranty expired, you (like me) will probably have to just pay the diagnostic fee ~$95

All-in-all, it took them about 30 minutes to fix at my dealer.

Thanks. Good to know.
