Re: Some problems, need help (Vin_ZNT)

when you turn the wheel all the way the tires will rub. i dont think they rub on the body at all, just some parts of the suspension. i dont know what parts exactly, but someone else will definately know.
as for the brakes...well a good portion of the 20th owners have that problem, so welcome to the club. but some dealers are helping out with that and others are no help at all.

The rubbing may be contributed to the wheel well liner not attached to the body (frame) of the car. I have the same problem
and after an hour of looking
that is what I uncovered. I would check to see if any screws are missing or loose (not in you head
).
As for your brakes, it has happened to me as well. But some highway driving took care of that.

Good luck.
