Default 2004 Honda Accord V6 63,000 miles

This morning I heard a sound (similar to rubber rubbing together) when I turned the steering wheel to the left and again when I straightened the wheel. I do not hear the sound when I turn the wheel to the right.
Does anyone have any ideas of what could cause this before I take it to the dealership and they tell me I need a new car. Thanks for any informaton you can provide.

Two comments:
  1. Lots of possible causes and not enough information for us to go on suggests you should probably take it to a dealer or certified mechanic.
  2. No dealership (even marginally crooked ones) will tell you you need a new car because of a steering noise on a car with mileage as low as yours.

It could be something as simple as a minor adjustment in the steering column. Doesn't sound too serious. I'd find an independent mechanic with good reviews. I share your feelings about the dealer. They would charge you more for the diagnostic than the repair itself might cost.
