    Unhappy 2010 SRX grinding sound when turning steering wheel (not in cold weather)

    I have read a multitude of post with the issue of the grinding sound when turning the wheel or going over bumps and most report it happens when it's cold. I am in California and it is not very cold at all and is happening in 60 to 80 degrees. I just bought a very used (one owner) 2010 SRX with 77K and the first couple of days I didn't hear the grinding so I'm thinking something was done at the dealer (not Cadillac dealer) to hide the grind. I have an appointment on Thursday, 3/6/14 at a Cadillac dealer service center to get it checked out. I'm sure that whatever the issue is it is not still under warranty and since I will be paying out of pocket I don't want to go through the trial and error that all the different people went through with the sway bar bushings, strut mounts, struts, stabilizer bar, etc if someone knows what may be causing the noise. Its really embarrassing to have a luxury vehicle that is performing like an old clunker, especially when people want totake a ride in your sleek vehicle and it's grinding at every turn. HELP!!! Any idea what this is? I've read so many threads (not all) but if someone has an answer please share.

    Sorry for you problem(s). I can only share with you that mine was fixed the first time and hasn't repeated itself. I have a 2010 Premium with around 28K miles on it. Here is precisely what the paperwork said the fix was: Replace Left & Right strut assemblies. This was done at mileage 18,835 on my SRX. Hope this helps.

    Anyone find a fix to this? I replaced sway bar bushings and it still makes a noise when cold? Next stop strut top mounts?
