#32 of 95 Steering noise
Mar 06, 2010 (9:32 am)
I have a 2005 LaCrosse with less than 17000 miles. The steering noise was more pronounced on a right turn than on a left turn . I researched the NHTSA site and found many more complaints about this problem and also the service bulletin 010232001. I took this info to my dealer and right away he knew of the problem and said make an appointment to bring it in and verify that it was the intermediate steering shaft that was bad. He said with my mileage he would have no trouble taking care of it under warranty, which he did. They replaced the shaft. This is a very good Buick dealer who has always treated me fairly. I went home as another satisfied customer.

I had posted about the steering noises in my new Lacrosse, General Motors finally posted a bulletin on the problem, my dealer called for me to bring my car in next week to replace the intermeadiate sateering shaft and the steering gear box, after all this denial from GM, they are finally going to repair my car,with pressure from an outside source

I have read the previous posts and a couple refer to "grinding" noises when turning the steering wheel, especially when first starting up and attempting a moderate (not a sharp) turn. After driving 5 minutes or less, the problem is no longer present. I have had this problem since Day One, however, it has not gotten any worse. My questions are: is there a mechanical fix for this? Nothing to worry about? Thanks.

I had the intermediate steering shaft replaced twice on my 2006 LaCrosse. The noise I heard was more "clunking" as I turned the corner, more noticable when pulling away from a stop. If it is this shaft, it will eventually make more noise but it is not going to break, just doesn't sound good. This was fixed for me under a recall warranty and I have not had any problem since. Hope you get your fixed as well.

May I suggest that you edit the previous post if you read this in 30 minutes of posting time to remove your email address. It may get picked up by the bots on the net and sold or abused.
Even the instructions for Post a Message try to remind us not to post our address.

Just to make the point: I can search for my username and edmunds.com on Google, and I come up with posts from the past, but not that distant, March 2010 for one.
Using your user name and just Edmunds, I get a post from January 22 has been saved for posterity by Google.
With sites like Spokeo who make a business of information, personal privacy is minimized. Spokeo lets people search for usernames, email addresses, as well as names to find information. Spokeo then tries to sell it to the person searching for it. But once you've learned a little on Spokeo, it's easy to garner more directly through the net without paying them.
So the hosts are trying to help us by advising not to put emails into the posts.

Hi Chistina (GM Customer Service),
I received an email from this forum asking for my VIN# and mileage. I think from looking at the recent posts that the person going by lacrossesoaked has answered. I don't think you want mine since it has been fixed over 2 years ago and more than 10,000 miles ago. I think it had around 40K when the problem started.
