He said scrubbing, not rubbing on the wheel well. My car does it forward or backwards with the wheel turned 3/4 of the way. I have been told this is a design characteristic of the performance package. If this is the case why don't all cars that are equipped this way make the noise? I care because it is embarrassing. Anytime someone rides with me and it makes this noise I have to explain to them that no my $50,0000 new car isn't falling apart. My car did not do this when I bought it. It mainly does it on wet pavement. I don't know where you live, but I live in Seattle. Here it is wet 90% of the time in the winter. I can't believe you people who say its no big deal. Aren't you worried about your resale. How are you going to explain this to a potential purchaser? If you are tired of this thread don't read it. Do you run this forum? Just because you are happy with a sub par car doesn't mean we all have to be. If you like the noise don't do anything about it.
