Neighbor has it, the AWD version.  Makes creaking noise from front near firewall over bumps, only when it is over 60 outside.  Two garages and the dealership are stumped, checked every bushing and sprayed  them with silicone.  Any soccer moms having the same issue?

 Creaking sounds on vehicles I've had in the past has always been sway bar links.

Need more information.  When does it occur?  Accelerating, braking, cornering left or right?

My 2005 MPV used to do this, but only when it got cold.   Most noticeable over speed bumps.  New bushings fixed it.

I've had ball joints do it on a Honda Accord.

Haven't been in it but according to them it is only when its warm outside and over bumps. Went to the shop again today, will see if they find it this time.

Loose subframe bolts caused a similar issue for me.

Now that sounds very interesting.  Thanks will pass it on.

On the third visit to the shop they found worn out struts.  Third visit? IMHO should have been found much faster.

Thanks for the inputs.
