Suspension Problems
Every once in a while when I step on the brakes it makes a "clunk" sound. I'm not sure where it's coming from, but it feels like the front. I also have a problem with squeaking brakes (only in reverse) is there a quick solution to fixing that, or do I need new pads all together? Any ideeas?

What I'm worried about, is that even under "bumper to bumper" the terms of my warranty dont include suspension. I had nothing but 3,000$ worth of suspension problems on my other car angry (cv boots, cv joints, struts, all 4 brake calipers, leak in master cylinder, rotors, abnormal wear on pads, loose anti rattle springs ...) That's the reason i got a new car. I live on a half paved half dirt road that's got a billion pot holes and dips. The hoise wasn't there when I bought it in December ... *sigh* Guess I'll have it checked out & post diagnosis.

As for squeaking ... I park "skat" (backed into spot) frequently. The guy who owned it before me lived down by the beach so there's even some rust stains here and there by the rotors cry .. It's so embarassing to see everyone turn around ... lol good thing I have tinted windows. happywink
