Jeep Compass makes "clank" sound in U-turn

Hi,

I have a brand new Jeep Compass 2012, with 100 kms and I have experienced a metallic sound "clank" when I make a u-turn at slow speed. Any ideas??

I have the warranty but I just wanted to know before I take it to my dealer.

Thanks!!!

Lucy is the sound expert.

But without being there I would have no idea. Front, back there is far too much envolved and you'd have to narrow it down a lot for ideas. You're lucky if it does it most times the dealer can issolate it and fix it.

the sound comes from the front left wheel, and it is not happening all the time (only 2 times in 2 weeks).

It like something is stuck (and makes the metallic "Clank" sound) when I turn in u-turn. Anyway I expect to take it to the dealer next week. I think I could survive until then.

It helps if you post details of your vehicle in the signature as many of us have. Then we know what you have. Is this a 4x4 and is it engaged.

Check tire pressure, they should be the same if there is a big difference issues will result.
