I have an 06 Buick Lucerne that I recently purchased, it has 144xxx mi. As I was driving to Ky on the hwy a car stopped with no warning so I slammed on my brakes and took the left shoulder of the road to avoid hitting her. I finally stopped 2 car lengths in front of her on the shoulder. The car handled beautifully regardles of the bumpy shoulder and did not seem to have any issues once I got back on the hwy. A few days later I began to notice noise from the right wheel. It only happens when I take a sharp turn to the right or left and it sounds like creaking, scrubbing or like scraping with some little bumps. If I take a slow curve it is not noticeable. It is not incredibly loud but it is something that I could feel in the petal as well. It just started and I want to be proactive and take care of this car as a single mom it is a priority to catch it and take care of it. It is paid for and immaculate for it's age and mileage. Also when I apply the brakes I notice that it shimmies slightly which it did not do before.
