Whistling/Screaming/Whining Noise

Postby jessewilliams56 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 1:44 am

At 3k on this car, we have started hearing a whining/whistling/screaming sound at 70 mph while driving. It did not do this until 3k rolled over on the odometer. I am hearing it around the dash or front of the car on the inside of it. Dealership says it’s just road noise. They sprayed some stuff on the door sills and ruined the a pillar triangles on the door from where they sprayed the stuff where the car detects another car on the sides.

Please tell me this isn’t normal.

What should we do?

We took our Kicks to the dealership to have it diagnosed and repaired.

The diagnosis was messed up sway bars or sway bar links. They had to order those as well as the door caps and the struts.

I don't feel safe in this car any more. I can't get my mother or anyone to listen to me regarding getting rid of it and getting something entirely different.

I can guarantee that there will be other issues down the road.
