Hmph, I’ll have to get mine checked out then. There are significant *thumps* over even the smallest of bumps. It’s practically silent other than that.I don't get any noise over bumps. 2015 @ 47K or so. One of the things that attracted me to the car was how quiet it is.
Mines more of a thump that seems to come from the tires and/or the body of the car itself. It’s as if the wheels are connected directly to the body. Maybe my shock absorbers are bad. I’ll have to get them looked at. Thanks for your insight!Depending on the size/intensity of the bump, my car will sometimes make creaking noises from the sunroof or corner of the dash or rear package shelf if it's a sharp type bump. Larger but not impactful types of bumps exhibit no noise in my car. Never any thumps unless my car is basically over loaded or close to the weight limit (full of luggage and 5 adults) then hit a larger bump but that is the bump stops doing their job at the end of suspension travel.
I’ll take a look when it gets back to the shop (some idiot rear-ended me ) but I’ve tested pushing down before and I haven’t noticed any noise. I don’t think it’s a suspension problem in THAT way, it still seems to ride fine (though a bit stiff) but any sharp bumps just cause a thump. Sort of a pressure build up thump. It seems better when I roll the windows down. It’s hard to explainI would also check for any loose (or bent or broken) parts of the suspension.
Can you duplicate the noise when the car is parked by pushing down on any of the corners?
That’ll be the first thing that I do when I get it back, thanks!If I remember correctly someone in the forums (forgot who) had problems with a spring in their front. If the spring has broken this could be a symptom, get it looked at to make sure you're not damaging part of your frame.
I have the 18” maybe I have really stiff tires? My ride seems stiff too, I dunno. I’m still going to get it checked out when I canMine thumps over bumps as well. My impression is that it's due to the 19" wheels on the SX-L. Short sidewall on the tires doesn't leave much flexibility to cushion bumps.
When it comes time to get new tires, I might move to 18" wheels to get a taller tire sidewall. That would make it peaceful over bumps.
Would you guys mind telling me what tires you are using? Maybe it’s my tires?
Hmph. I’m at a loss. I’ve had two pairs of tires (continental surecontact and Bridgestone quiettrack) and they’ve both made noise. I will definitely be getting this checked out.Presently, Hankook on the front and Uniroyal on the back. We just bought the car a month ago. The Uniroyals are new and the Hankooks seem to have a lot of thread on them. When they do wear out, we will probably replace them with Michelin pilot sports. I just purchased a matching (used) factory wheel on ebay to use as a full sized spare when tire replacement time does come around.
