Has anyone experienced hearing squeeks from the drivers side of the vehicle? It is heard when travelling slowly over slightly wavy road way or slowly over a speed bump and the vehicle goes up and down.

Are the squeaks coming from the inside of the vehicle? I have a very creaky seat - when I accelerate, brake or turn I hear a creaking coming from the drivers seat mounts. I brought it in already but they did not fix the problem - I have to bring back and make them aware that I did not purchase a $40K vehicle to hear creaking everytime I move :banghead:

If yours is coming from the outside then I do not have a clue what could be causing this.

I had this squeak and it turned out to be the e-brake cable rubbing/banging around under the car. The tech "adjusted" (probablly bent) the guide to fix the problem. No noise ever since.

Mine is at the dealer for the creaky seat right now. They kept it overnight last night so a GM rep could see it this morning. Apparently the dealer could not fix it themselves yesterday. I'll post results when I get it back.

Excellent info, I have the same squeak. Will give it a look.

mine sounds like it is coming from the outside, under the vehicle. It almost sounds like it is coming from the shock/strut bushings. I will need to have GM take a look and see if they can find it.

That is exactly what mine sounded like. I thought for sure a bushing was defective or something. It was so irritating to me that such a new vehicle could already have a noise like this. Turned out to be no big deal.

After two days, they still could not fix the creaky seat. I pulled the car from the dealership because I need it for a vacation trip next week. Very annoying...both the noise and the dealer!

BigGuy,
You said that the fixed the noise for you. What did they do to eliminate the squeek?
Thanks.

I had the same squeak on the rear left side when going over speed bumps at low speed.
I was able to fix it myself. It is the emergency brake cable rubbing against the shock.
Just had to bend it a little.
