    My 2015 GS Hatch with 22k miles has recently started creaking at low speed. It happens mostly at parking lot speeds when pulling into or out of a parking space or driveway. The best way I can describe it is a creaking like being aboard an old ship; I wouldn't say it clunks. So far I haven't been...

    when I had my clutch replaced, I noticed a creaking noise after the work was performed. Clutch seems to be fine. My shocks and struts were way overdue to be changed out so my son-in-law swapped them out. That improved things but I still hear the creaks when I accelerate or make sweeping turns...

    2010 3 2.5 5 door that started having a lot of creaking and banging in the back with uneven surfaces, usually slow speed like parking lots. So far have replaces sway bar end links, put on Koni Str.t shocks with new rear shock mounts. The shocks seemed to help for a day or so but not completely...

    Hey all. I just installed my Tein S-Techs on my '15 hatchback yesterday, and driving around today I noticed a creaking/knocking noise coming mainly from the front struts. It gets worse whenever I go over a sharp speed bump, but with how low the springs go, any slight bump in the road I get the...

    Hi Guys, Been a while since i posted anything! I have recently heard creaking noises when turning my wheels. It sounds similar to a squeaky door or frog croaking. I'm on airlift performance air suspension. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be and if it would be easy to have it repaired...

    Is this normal? I hear a creaking noise from my car when parked or at a standstill. It seems to be coming from the chassis or suspension, even when I'm just sitting inside and shifting slightly. It sounds like metal being strained or something. It's a little disconcerting seeing how new this car...

    I have owned my 2011 MS3 for roughly a year now, noticed a creaking noise coming from near the bottom of my firewall every time I apply throttle (even really light throttle) especially at low speeds, somewhat sounds like metal being stressed, the more I step in the more painful the creaking...

    So couple days ago I found a creaking sound coming from what seems like passenger side. I went to the dealer but could not reproduce it. So I decided to do some digging and process of elimination found the root cause.. i think. The sound is only noticeable while radio is off and car is in stop...

    So my 2015 has 2300 miles on the clock and since new (320 miles) the steering wheel has been off center to the right about 4 degrees. I've brought the car to the dealership twice to get the wheel centered and each time they tell me it's good to go and what do ya know it's exactly the same. They...

    I've had my car since February of 2014 and the creaking and cracking noises from the plastic parts of the dashboard are getting so annoying. Would I find these kind of noises in other similarly priced cars ($19-$25K range)? I love and appreciate the way the Mazda drives but I'm thinking that I...

    I've had my springs installed for about 1.5 years now. Ever since I installed them I heard this mild creaking noise from my front passenger strut. This happens only when turning my wheels in either direction. It has run fine otherwise without any issues, but the noise is finally starting to get...

    Hey all, Took my MS3 to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan this weekend to camp out. It's about 4-5 hours of highway driving and everything was smooth. I got home Sunday and this morning started her up but noticed a new noise and wanted to see if anyone knew anything. I'm getting a sort of...

    The past couple of months I noticed a creaking noise while turning the wheel to the right and sometimes to the left. This noise also happens sometimes when I go over bumps but mostly when I turn the wheel at slow speeds. I do not hear this noise when I drive faster. Also, if my car is not moving...
