I've got a rattle under my steering column. Sounds like ticking. It is intermittient, but seems to intesify when I am bearing right. I took it to the dealer and a technician rode with me, but he could not hear it. Got about 1k miles on the car. Anybody experiencing this?

Yea we got the steering column rattle but it sounds like it's coming directly from that plastic shield behind the steering wheel. Fiance is too lazy to bring it to the dealers attention so he usually just hits it and it goes away for a little while...lol

I have one when I turn the wheel, its like a clicking, catching sound. I just live with it because I hate the dealership. I took my car in last week for a alinment job and left with a torn shifter boot.

I always do a walk around whenever I leave my car. so thre can be no if, and or buts about who messed it up.

I did do that. Before I started the car I found it, brough it to the guys attention and got them to order a new one.

Good. You got to watch these folks every step of the way. I see you are at Edwards. I went to the strip in Palmdale last night. No Goats running at all. Infact I had the only one in the parking lot. Do you ever go to that strip?

Yep, sort of a very light, high-pitched ticking sound. Mine was really bad on hot days? Adjusting the steering column helped.

Yep, I got a noise behind the dash somewhere, off to the left. Comes and goes for no reason. Sounds like the harness rubbing on something. Can't reproduce it standing still though.
That and the shift knob cracking just piss me off. Other than that the car is good.
This one seat of the pants is much quicker then the other 2.
