I have a Honda 2006 CRV and when I am turning the car it makes a odd noise, like it is struggling. I always think I should get the car out of the turn as soon as possible. As I get out of the turn the noise goes away and it drives okay.
A mechanic told me he thought it was a "binding in the drive train" and to get it checked out at the dealer.
Do you have any ideas? If it is the drive train do you have any idea what it would cost to repair?
If you still have an original factory warranty I would have the dealership take a look at it. If you have an extended warranty then they may very well cover the cost of the repair minus your deductible.
You could have a problem with the power steering pump or with the steering rack. It*s difficult to diagnose noises without hearing them in person. I do suggest you have it checked out soon so that no further damage is done. Check out the list of female friendly shops on Ask Patty if you are having trouble finding a reliable technician.
