    Suspension Problem?

    Hi guys, a few days ago I started hearing sounds which seem to be coming from under the car. It's a knock sound whenever the car is not smooth, for example when up shifting or down shifting, getting the car rolling in first or turning. I also get this knock sound if I keep the car in first gear and just hit the gas and let off to make the car jerk. To me it sounds like it's coming from the back drivers side but I am not too sure. I have booked an appointment to go into the dealer Wednesday morning. Does anyone have any ideas what this might be? I did not hit anything or go over any bumps/potholes at a high speed. Does Hyundai cover suspension under it's warranty? I've only had the car since the end of August and only have 8200 km's on it.

    Is your problem exactly the same as mine? Sometimes it's like a "knock knock" on a rougher shift. It's really frustrating!

    Nope, my V is bone stock, the only thing different is winter tires/rims which I'm positive has nothing to do with it. What about yours?

    Yeah do that and see what happens lol. To me it seems like a nut or something is loose. At first I thought it was a one time thing. Then I was able to start replicating it by making the car jerk in first gear and such to re-create the sound.

    Taking it in Wednesday morning as that's my day off this week. How long has this been happening to your V? Did it get any worse or better over time?

    It will be under warranty dont worry. If its suspension related, it could be a bad bushing or strut mount. The exhaust could be hitting something. If your making the car jerk, it could be something inside the car too. Check the spare just to make sure its secured properly.

    And if its something you can easily replicate, they should be able to diagnos it easily too.

    Thanks MTD. I'll take out everything from the trunk, secure the tire and take loose stuff out of the car but I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the suspension.

    Sounds like a bushing issue to me. Does it also happen when you go down a hill onto an even road suddenly?

    Hmmm, I have not had that scenario come up yet. But I will keep that in mind.
