    Weird Squeak

    I am getting this really funny squeaking noise on the front right side of my car. I think it is near the wheel. This squeaking noise happens when I take the car 70 or above. It is not loud be but it is quite annoying. Any suggestions on what this might be and any solutions on how I can fix it? Thanks for your help.

    How old is your car?

    Have you done any type of offroading recently?

    hmmm i have a smilar problem but it sounds like metal to metal bang when i hit the brakes after backing up. Same location what is seems like right front wheel. Its wierd in that it only does happen only once after backing up and then going forward and hitting the brakes even so slightly. I took the weel off to inspect what is making the noise and found nothing to be a suspect. You however might have a different problem since it happens at high speeds. This kind of a noise is really hard to diagnose just by description, I am taking mine to the dealer becasue i have 45k and joints might be my problem and i have an extended warranty. You should also take it in since yours is brand new and joints should be fine, but maybe your wheel hub is faulty out of the factory so have them worry about it. Also is it a periodic squeak, like squeak...squeak....squeak and then becomes more constant at higher speeds or does it appear all of the sudden at that speed. I heard that the older model side mirrors would make a howling noise at higher speeds, although it hasn't happaned on mine....anyways just a thought.

    Just like subaru_crazy said, bring it to the dealer. The car is brand new.
