Q: Squeaking when you hit a bump in the road

asked by on August 16, 2016

Squeaking in front by the wheels only when I hit a bump

My car has 1682 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should check the sway bar bushings and links. You can do so by having someone bounce the car up and down and have the other person feel them by hand. You will be able to feel squeaking part.

If you’d like some assistance with this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come diagnose the source of the noise and help you fix it accordingly. Best of luck.
