Suspension problem

When I am cruising on the road and when I get a patch or bump on the road I hear on the back left side of the car a sound. It sounds like a clunking/squeaking sound. My car only has 24,000 miles. Has far as I know it still has the factory suspension.

Not much for us to go on, but could be the rear stabilizer end links. The crappy OEM rubber bushings can groan and creak over bumps. There should be a TSB and stealership should fix under warranty.

I had the same problem. Changed out the sway bar links and still didn't solve it. Ended up changing the rear shocks and it was eliminated. Weird cause it would only squeak when it was below 60degrees.

Clunking can sometimes be a sign of worn out shocks or struts. Sometimes they go out quicker then they are supposed to.

In my past experience I found that when I went to places like NTB, Firestone or Meineke for specials on oil change, they would check out the car for problems, while it was on the lift. They often found worn and/or loose joints, leaky shocks, etc and I would thank them and fix the problems myself.
I'm sure a place like that would be glad to look for the problem while servicing the car, at no additional cost.
Just a possible no-cost option to consider if out of warranty.

Bottom line...you should get it looked at by a professional or at least a semi-professional.

I'm thinking it may be the bushings. I'll look into having a professional examine it next week to see what it could be.

I had the same problem but on the front right side and it turned out to be the control arms
