07 Coupe Creaks?!!??

Anyone have this experience. I have an 07 coupe that creaks when I go around turns. It sounds like it is coming from the back. I have 7,200 miles on it. Any ideas?

If it's the top that's creaking, a little silicone grease on the two forward mounting points and the latch will help. Also make sure the top is seated properly before latching.

No. It is certainly coming from the back and in the front when I have the wheel almost turned all the way to either side.

turns at any speed or parking lot speeds? At very slow speeds with the wheels fully turned the tires may skid and cause the car to feel like it's binding or hopping.

It's the limited slip differential. there is a tsb and you need to have the diff fluid changed. New type fluid will help. Now if you don't mind the noise it is not hurting anything. Mine is under warranty and the dealer using the tsb will change the fluid for free.
