Front end suspension, wheel bearing & steering - grinding noise when going over small holes or hills such as speed bumps & pot holes. Almost never when driving directly forward, but often when turning. Dealer made 4 (four) repair attempts and still has not gotten it right. Not 2 months after last repair, which took six weeks to get all the parts together (during which the lemon law coverage for my car expired - go wonder about that..) the noises have returned again. Other issues, I have seen 6 total issues mentioned in this site that I can identify with. As for those sudden accelerations some have mentioned, yes I agree the pedals are too close which makes it easy to mash both brake & gas pedals.
