steering wheel and accelerator groan

wondering if anyone has this...

since summer have been getting some sort of groaning/whining noise at low speeds when the steering wheel is turned or when taking foot off the accelerator...

thought it might be power steering fluid being low but looked fine to me..

may have to get the dealer to check it out when i get the winter tyres swapped over but just seeing if anyone has had this before...
it's here!!!

Let me know what you find out when you do. I plan on going in for an oil change next week so I will raise the issue. I'm not sure its the steering as I hear it without turning the wheel I'm not too worried, these cars will drive you crazy if you let em

The "Regenerative Braking" is the culprit. It actually pulls energy from the engine braking while coasting, not heat energy from the brake rotors.
