I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra, 136000 miles. As I was driving the other day (Monday) it was making a horrific popping noise as I turn (right and left). From all accounts we concluded it was the cv joints. I took the car to a local shop on Wed, they call said it was both cvs and axles. Both were replaced and I picked up the car today. After I left the shop I drove about 2 miles and as I was coming to a stop I heard a pop from the drivers side wheel. This happened 3 more times, as I was driving back to the shop. Also, I was going down a steep hill bearing right, the steering slipped as if I let go of the wheel, this happened once more before I got back to the shop.
I left the car there for today, they called tonight to tell me that the strut and strut mounting are breaking (he mentioned this is what was causing my break problem (note: I never had a break problem). They want an additional $800+ to fix the strut problem and $200+ to fix the break problem I never had.
I'm just wondering if this sounds right, I never had a problem with the steering slipping before today. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
have the same problem?
