Hey,
I've noticed a low pitch squealing when I turn corners, I brought it to the dealership to have it checked out. I was told this is normal for these cars, can anybody confirm this?

Hard corner or just a small turn? Hard corner may be normal, small turn sounds like either one of the three differentials is locking up or an alignment job needs to be done.

Could be your power steering fluid level is low

I have had this issue since day 1, or maybe it was day 2 after the mishap with the ditch. In any case the dealer has always claimed an "inability to replicate the purported issue". I only ever really notice it when driving out of my garage or of course when I attempt to look cool in front of girls as i squeak my way up to a stoplight.

This forum haunts me. In the earlier post I said I never had an issue...until just today. I was slowly moving out of a parking space and I hear a squealing noise at low speeds but went away after I sped up. Damnnit. I tried to reproduce it and couldn't. Will try later again...

hey, so I brought my vehicle to the dealership and I was told that this is normal. I was told the sound was from my supercharger, but that doesn't make sense cause I'm only able to hear the sound when I turn and I definitely didn't have this problem when I first purchased this car.

Yep had this a couple of years ago ad it drove me crazy. Steadily got a bit louder as time passed. It's an issue with the additive in the power steering fluid. My dealership did a power steering flush and replaced the fluid wiht the proper amount of additive and it went away immediately. Never had the problem since. It's an easy fix.
