Creaking front suspension fixed !!

My new 2012 V6 began creaking when I went over speed breakers and small bumps, causing considerable heartache every time I heard my brand new car make these noises.


Gave my car in for servicing today with 2 complaints:
1) Creaking from front right suspension.
2) Hard gear shift in 1st and 2nd with a cold start.

The dealership used TSB's for both these issues.
1) Replaced LCA and resolved creaking.
2) Said that the TSB states that this is the nature of the beast

Hope this helps other worried newbies relax.

Re: Creaking front suspension fixed !!

Yes, I do have TSB nos:

1) For the squeaking: TSB 09-24-16
2) For the shifting: TSB 11-11-1, or NHTSA Item No: 10042484

The following is the link to a GOV website where most of the reported TSBs can be found:
Search for a Service Bulletin | Safercar.gov | NHTSA

BTW, my windows were also shuddering when I went over imperfections in the road, and the dealership apparently put in some kind of lubricant to help resolve that. I haven't driven it enough to make sure that its gone. Will keep you posted.
