New: The noises are getting worse as the days get warmer. I'd like to restate as I did at the beginning of this very long post that the first time I took it in they "greased" the strut bumpers/bushings and the sound went away for a short time but returned. The last time they replaced bushings and springs. Nothing. To those who doubt the temperature relation I know it does it more during warm weather. Maybe it is an expansion issue on the struts or something. If there were a new model strut, I'd be more optimistic.
SIDE NOTE: I drove a new titanium on the dealer lot. The noises were far worst than on my car. I was thankful I didn't own that one!
My dealership has been very cooperative. I have no issues with them. I'd like to see a permanent solution though.
