Question about 2006 Saturn Vue
There is a sort of knocking sound coming from my front right tire, it is mostly noticable when I am driving fairly slow, making a turn or hit a slight bump. When I drive on the freeway it doesn't make any sound, nor does it when I go over speed bumps. I took it to Discount tire today and they told me it was because I needed new tires. What a joke! They replaced my tires and the sound is still there.
This one really fires me up! First go back to Discount tire and "speak" to the manager. Tell him you want the actual problem fixed and that you want the cost of that repair subtracted from the cost of the tires since you didn't come in to buy tires in the first place. If he won't agree to that, DON'T pay them any more money to take pot-shots at fixing the problem. Take it to another shop but make sure to let him know that you'll be contacting his regeional manager, the BBB, and your local news papers consumer rip-off column writer. That said, it's very possible, depending on the miles on the vehical, that you may have a worn or bad ball joint or somehow something in the suspention has come loose, ie: pitman arm, control arm, shock, etc... The only way to know is to have a reputable professional inspect the front end.
