IN the last two days on our little road trip, i noticed on our caliber, a knocking or popping noise. It only does it when the wheel is turned and you accelerate.And it seemed more so when the wheel is turned to the left. I am going to give the dealer a call in a few hours when they open and see if i can get it in. It's still under warranty, so as far as i'm concerned, its dodges problem. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and or if any ideas as to what the issue is. thanks

Our 09 makes this noise but only when it is below 20 degrees outside and only for about a mile or two until whatever it is warms up.
