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.
