I purchased my car from lockhart Cadillac in indianapolis, in. About one week later I began to have a grinding sound each time I turned the steering wheel left or right. I have taken in for repair several times. In September 2001, in addition to the grinding sound when turning the wheel, my car now slows down when I turn. Also it has now begun to make the same sound when I back up. Both lockhart Cadillac in indianapolis and val ward in ft. Myers, Florida have told me that Cadillac is working on it. They have been telling me this since February 2001. The noise is becoming louder.
