all stock 2011, squeek on bumps and on door close
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:58:32 PM »
title says it all.

2011 sti, 5k miles, all stock

when i roll over bumps, even really small ones my car squeeks like a 1982 ford ranger, it's embarrassing and extremely annoying.

i get the same squeek sound when i shut any of the doors.

it's not the door henge, and i can't replicate the sound by rocking the car side to side from the inside.

any ideas? anyone else experienced this?


on a side note - my tpms sensor light went off the other day, when i still have my winter tires with no sensors on so i thought that was kind of weird too.

it's the 'A' pillars, and the rear cover behind the seats will make noise as well nothing holding it in the middle

Hatch or sedan.


My 09 hatch the cargo cover squeaked and rattled...still does actually
The dash by the driver side A-pillar squeaks a lot when it's cold. 


It's good old Subaru stuff for ya.


Keep in mind we drive sports cars with firm suspensions.  Stuff is gonna squeak and rattle.

sedan

this noise is coming from the outside of the car i think, it can be heard at quite a distance.

it's going to the dealer under warranty this week, just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this
