Some times you just cant rely on what the dealer tells you. Lift the front up. Shake the wheel up and down and side to side to check the ball joints and steering linkage. What does the sound sound like? Where is it coming from?

there is no noise, just feels like the steering wheel is loose, and the front end jumps around!

Have a shop check ball joints, tie rod ends, and wheel bearings. Not much else it could be.

How many miles?
