Guesses from experience.
The Avant groaned on turns until I checked the lug nuts, two loose, groan 
The Sedan has the brake pedal engage high in hot weather as the MC applies 
pressure to the brakes.
So what's you temperature when this happens?
You PS fluid low?
Front Brakes dragging?
Wheel lugs loose?
Wheel bearing going bad?
Just some ideas............. -SCott by BOSTON
