Hi, this comes up often on this vehicle. The most common cause of it is the plastic steering column cover. They warp and hit the steering wheel and cause this noise. A mechanic will typically remove the covers to see if the noise goes away. If it does then that is the problem. If not then the steering shaft is the next most common cause of this.
