I've had my steering wheel shaft changed (by warranty) at a little bit over 10,000 miles. My steering wheel was making a disastrous noise every time I would start the car and at the time the wheel pops out of its default shutdown position. It was so bad that people I took for a ride actually had pretty bad laughs at my car about being so new and giving those funky noises.

The car ('15 F15) has visited the dealer 3 times due to the same issue. The first two times they just opened the wheel and put some lubricant on the shaft. The third time the dealer ordered a new shaft and changed it.

I was told this exact same issue used to happen on the former 7 Series.
