Default slight sound driving me nuts :)

Well, I have now had my '05 Touring Turbo Vert for 5+ months, however for the past month or so I have noticed a slight noise coming from the bottom front area when I go over a bump, turn on to a driveway, ect... at slow speed, not sure how to explain it, kinda like a squeaky bed???

Any ideas out there?

Any one of the bushings or a bad wheel bearing.

You haven't narrowed it down to what the noise may be yet so we can't tell you if it's something that can be done at home. A sound is extremely hard to diagnose on-line because what it sounds like to you might be different to us.

A lot of shops with look at your car for free thinking they will have the business of fixing whatever is wrong when it's diagnosed. Other places will try and do all kinds of work that you don't need. Sounds scary...and it is. if you can, ask around for a reference for a mechanic that's trustworthy.

How many miles on the car?

Would guess sway bar bushing inner cushion or outer link. Struts could be worn too.
