Intermittent clicking/grinding sound

Hey everyone - need a 2nd opinion on this - we DO have a certified pre-owned so we have reported this issue but they could not reproduce and it IS intermittent - wondered if folks had run into this

USUALLY happens when starting up - but lately I have seen it once middle of a lot of driving - when turning left just a little bit after starting to turn the wheel we hear a loud clicking/grinding sound for a few seconds then it goes away. Might happen once or twice in a given day - usually happens when you first start leaving a parking spot - we did take the time to let her warm up properly (in a few cases a long warm up on purpose) it is NOT a consistent or common problem but it happens enough that I wonder if something is wrong with the steering or suspension.

Has anyone else run into this?
