Default 2008 Honda Civic Coupe - Grinding on left turn?

Bought an 08 Civic Couple early this year, and after the first time I had oil and tire rotation done something started grinding or screeching on sharp left turns. It sounds like metal on metal, and sometimes it's kinda subtle but still there. Anyway I took it to the dealer and they drove it and had me show them the sound, but they say they're unsure what it is. It's obviously still within warranty, but the dealer told me to bring it back when the sound gets worse.I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea what the sound could be or has experience with the same thing, and if they're just blowin' me off basically?Thanks.

My 94 civic has sounds when I make sharp turns at slow speed. It sounds like a clacking sound. It's likely to be the CV joint that's wearing out although I don't know why that would be the case on a new car. Mine only makes the sound when I turn the steering wheel fully. It could be that the rubber boot covering the joint has a hole and has leaked out all the lubricant. Take your car to the local shop to have them hoist it and take a look. Some shops will do it for free. I got a quote today for $40 to take a look but I thought that was too steep. Good luck!
