Does anyone else with a Torrent experience an awful plastic rubbing noise only in the winter when going over bumps?

Asked by Dec 07, 2010 at 03:13 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Torrent Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Mine has made this noise only below freezing when the car is cold when I go over speed bumps.  It sounds horrible and when I take it in the car is warmed up and it doesn't make this noise.  The dealer can't find anything wrong with it.  It sounds like a piece of junk car.

Yup - good GM quality.

I don't have an answer but I bought a 2008 Pontiac Torrent a few months ago and now that it is cold that awful plastic rubbing noise is all I can hear! Looking if anyone have a fix for this besides turn up the radio!?
