As well as the dreaded ‘Death Rattle’there have also been reports of a clunking noise when turning. At first, the noise is faint and has been described as a popping sound but the noise gradually increases. Some people have noticed that the noise is worse from the passenger side. Indications are that the complaint stems from the CV joint but GM has yet to investigate this issue fully.
