problem #2

  • miles
When turning the steering wheel the wheel appears to click or knock. This begam shortly after I had the vehicle in to have the transmission repaired as it was shuddering after stopping and starting. I contacted the service people at the boise larry miller Buick place, where I had transmission fixed. I was told it was not serious and they would check it when I brought it in for service. But it concerns me, and I need to know if it is serious.
