2007 Mercedes-Benz C300: Creaking Wheel

December 23, 2008


Turn the steering wheel in our C300 at speed and it's silent. Turn the wheel at low speeds and it lets out an obnoxious groan. This isn't the first quality issue we've encountered with the Benz, and we haven't even reached the 20k mark


So the other day I was passenger in a '98 Chevy Tahoe. We backed out of a driveway, and sure enough, the steering wheel released the same groan. But this truck has over 100,000 miles on the odometer. Is this a compliment to GM build quality?
