Impala LT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,250 miles

Took 2012 Impala Lt to chevy dealer, charged me 117$ to diagnose, said was hub/harness wanted 800$ to fix, so took to my mechanic mid 2016 they fix what chevy said it was..did the work for 500$ cheaper, so I drove out lot, down road, still did noise, called GMAC Cust. service told them about it.. they called chevy & got it warranted to fix cus only a bit of 32k miles on it.. said "c" center harness was bad & fix.. no charge.. w/in the week, noises.. took back to them do look again 2 weeks ago.. couldn't hear it.. "of course not" never makes sounds when needed. Its making the rubbing feeling so bad now, there is hesitation in car when first turning car to left.. my mechanic had car for a day & a half, looking for the problem, listening for the rubbing... nothing.. & it is getting worse... only while turning a good left turn... So I see there are many complaints about this... why is chevy not recalling this... maybe because they can not figure out the freaking issue themselves?? All for the GMAC customers coming first.. yeah right... not when it comes to money they have to spend, cus the problem is theirs & not ours... Amazing... all i can say...

Anyone have any new insight to this...

grinding noise when taking a left turn from a parking place

Backing out of a parking space making a hard right then making a hard left, it sounds like a recycling

center grinding metal. I took it to the chevy dealer for two days and they couldn't make it do it.

It grinds and jerks until you straighten the wheels out. It is LOUD.
