I noticed whenever I go over a speed bump or drive into an uphill driveway to then reverse and turn around, I hear a loud rear creaking noise coming from the rear of the car.

I went to the dealer to have my first service (car is now 6 months old with 7000kms on it). I got my oil changed and mentioned the rear noise.

The dealer took a look at it and told me that my rear heat shield is bent and that they bent it back. No charge. Great I thought.

So when I did my usual reverse and turn around on my street, I still heard the creak (not as loud as before).

This time, I got down on my hands and knees and looked underneath the car from the back.

Hmmmm.. I think there is something that doesn't look right.

Can anyone give me some insight into this?

Car drives fine.... just this creaking noise.....drives me crazy. I don't think the mechanic really did too much to fix it.

I took it into the dealer today.

They said they might remove it if it is possible or perhaps try again and straighten it out.

Found out the creak was coming from the springs in the back of the seats behind the leather interior. All is good now.
