I have a Mazda 2, and recently, I took my car in for a service, and the mechanic told me that he noticed the steering wheel was making a 'clunking' sound as it is being turned.
The mechanic told me that he has safety concerns about this and recommends that I should get it looked into as soon as possible. He feels that there may be something loose about it and wants to charge an hourly rate to investigate.
I noticed that it was doing this as well and initially I was planning to take the car in to have it investigated, but today, it was not doing it.
When it was doing this, I suspect that it was because I had parked the car the night before on an uneven surface and the car was tilted to that of the driver's side. Since then, I had parked it on levelled ground and the sound seems to have gone away. I recall it doing something similar in the past when I parked it on unlevelled ground.
Something about leaving the car on unlevelled ground seems to cause the problem.
Is this a serious problem that I should take the car in to have investigated?
