What ever you do bro don't ever drive a Prius.An update for anyone still interested:
-Took the Vue to the dealership again this week. They replaced something in the suspension....they said it would fix the squeeking in the steering wheel. When I picked the car up, it seemed fixed. Now just two days later, it is STARTING to come back. This morning it made the rubbing noise again when turning out of the driveway..then it stopped..then it did again when leaving work.
-Air conditioning 'crackling' noise is still there. Dealership isn't trying to do anything anymore with it. I was told one of the 'senior techs' looked at it..and said it is somethign that is common on some Vues. He said they looked at 2 new ones in the lot and they were doing the same thing. I don't know..not happy about this but it looks like nothing I can do about it. All I know is that I have NEVER had another car that had a cracking/clicking sound coming from behind the vents whenever the AC is on.
...drive you bonkers trying to figger out what that clicking noise is or this relay clack noise was...
