My troubles with this vehicle continue...some new, some recurring. I've had it all of 8 months now, bought as a CPO from the dealer. Original owner bought it at the same dealer and had it serviced at this dealer. All local.

1. The front left brake would click loudly (like a hammer hitting an anvil - metal on metal click) each time I touch the brake pedal. Dealer took it in, agreed there was a very loud click, and changed the front brakes for new ones (covered under warranty). They stated there was excessive movement of the brake pads. Problem solved......for about 4 months. Now it's back again.
2. Front suspension would make a creaking noise (like old hardwood floors in an old house) every time I pulled into a driveway or pulled in a parking space. Dealer heard this too and agreed it needed to be fixed. They had the vehicle for two full days. Fixed the problem completely......lasted 6 weeks, now it's back again.

Anyone experienced the above issues? Believe me, I have more, but let's focus on just the above for now.

I had the squeeky creaking noise too. It was driving me insane. under the vehicle, where your right foot would be if you where sitting in the drivers seat, there is a mount point on the frame. I tightened it and sprayed it with WD 40 and it stopped. I looked and sprayed all over the upper and lower ball joints with no luck. if you drive at a slow walk pace and push the brake can you hear it squeaking ? hope this helps...

Thanks guys. I had brought it in for this about six weeks ago. They had it for two days and declared it fixed. It was quiet as a mouse.....now it's back. I appreciate the advice on what to try, and I may wind up doing that (so thanks again) but first it goes right back for them to see how well their "fixing" has held up.
