Vivid,

Maybe take your car to another mechanic for a second opinion if you haven't already. Our noises are certainly strange and unexplainable. What do you think?

One thing I forgot to...

mingkwong,

No, it happens on completely flat pavement. When I turn the steering wheel to park in a parking space, the creaking noise is heard.

Thanks.

Sure, they'll just test the battery out. I can't recall how long the battery's warranty is. That's a consumable like tires.

Thanks BossHu. My first thought at the time was maybe that the battery was having issues. Mine's only 1.5 years old but I have read in this forum of others having premature battery drain issues.

Funny that this has happened to you as I had read your post last week. This morning, this same thing happened to me. I've owned my 2014 F-Sport for 1.5 years without a single issue. ...

Julie,
