Like when I hit small bumps or like when I am just driving and the roa shifts a little it will pop I cn feel it in the steering wheel when it does and like in the gad pedal. I can stop the vechile and turn it sligtlty to the left little pop slighty back to right little pop

sounds like the good old intermidiate shaft klunk.

take it in. have them repair it under warranty. its not a big problem just annoying

especially if you run over a ginger at speed.

I have the same thing and have since day one. I had the dealer look at it a few months ago when I was in for an oil change and they said all was normal...

Take it to the dealer still. If they dont fix it, do what we said. Win win for you either way hopefully

I've heard of an upgraded steering shaft.
Worth a shot but we all know what they are going to say " sorry mr. "you" we can't replicate/duplicate the problem"

Or upgrade you steering stabilizer, that seems to be a fix for everything else
