grinding noise when turning in cold weather (-20 C)

Hey all,

I took my 2007 Compass to the dealership today because I am getting a grinding noise while turning sharp, usually from a stop but happens when driving slowly as well. They said that it is a common issuewith this type of vehicle and that there currently is not a fix for it.

Anyone else having this probem...if so what have you done??

I've heard it too, it doesn't sound like ice. Only happens when it is very cold before the car warms up. It almost sounds like locking hubs back when 4wd trucks had them.
