Strange noise when on full lock?

I currently own a 2010 Toyota Auris. I am very happy with, but in the past couple of weeks there seems to be a rubbing noise from the front wheels as I turn to (or near to) full lock. Any idea what this could be?

The answer to that is do not use full lock because that imposes tremendous strain on the driveshafts. Always wind a bit of lock off after you hit the stops.

My Daughter has a 2000 Toyota Yaris with 75,000 miles on it. On full lock, either way, there is a hissing sound. The dealer says this is normal. Would you agree or does something need to be done?

Sharper looking than original Auris. Good quality feel to the interior. Popular hybrid version offers low CO2, 60mpg, low maintenance and phenomenal reliability. Well built.
