2013 Cadillac ATS: Creaky Steering (With Video)

December 18, 2012

This is the steering wheel of our 2013 Cadillac ATS. Kind of nice, right? It's roundish, has a bunch of buttons (more on them later), is covered in leather and via some electronics, turns the front wheels.

It also makes a HORRIBLE creaking noise when you turn it more than a few degrees to either direction. It's done this since it was delivered (I have a crummier video of the same thing when it had 60 miles) and, really, I just thought it was new plastics that needed some breaking in. Clearly I was mistaken and this is something the dealer will have to handle.
