Occasionally you get a customer that has an issue you rarely come across, like doctors have patients with really rare diseases at times. One such incident occurred when a customer noticed a sound coming from their steering column, but only on hot days! It turns out that sounds which can only be heard on hot days are often due to expansion. For instance, plastic parts may wear over time and then when the temperature gets hot enough they expand enough for the parts to touch, making a sound when, say, the steering wheel is turned right or left.
If you notice any sounds you are not familiar with at any time on your vehicle, bring it in and have us check it out to make sure you are safe and sound.
