Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Vanessa, You may need to have your bushings inspected by a certified mechanic along with your neighboring steering components. You may have to pay a small inspection fee, call and ask for quotes! Hope this helps! A.J. Pierce

Audra Fordin, Owner at Great Bear Auto Shop Hello Vanessa, I must say it is great that you are car "aware". No one knows your car better than you and that is great you are in tune with what sounds normal, and not normal. As a tech, I use the drivers "feel" to help me diagnois a problem. When you bring your car into the shop, do not tell them what you think the problem is. Let them take a ride with you and experience what you hear. They will put the car on a lift and be able to pinpoint the culprit.

Diane Larson, Owner/Manager at Larson's Service Hi Vanessa :) Yes you could have worn bushings on your 2000 Honda with 80k, or it could be something else.... Important information to give the shop inspecting for the noise would be: When do you hear it - accelerating, braking, on bumps? Where do you hear it - under, in front, in back? What does the movement sounds like to you - bang, squeak, crunch? This will help the technician pinpoint the noise and let you know if it is a safety concern!

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Vanessa, I would suggest that you take a technician for a ride and let them hear what you're hearing. Until you know for sure it's hard to determine price.
