2000 Hyundai Tiburon Automatic 140000 miles
Hi. My 2000 Hyundai Tiburon emits a loud "pop" or "knock" sound, which seems to be getting more frequent and loud. It happens most often when turning the wheel, and it's coming from front drivers side. (I'm SURE something is about to break! AHH!) Car also seems to not be running as smoothly as usual. It feels like I can feel a tiny "bump" (and I mean REALLY tiny) as I drive forward, like something is off balance- it feels like there is a bump on whatever turns. (I clearly know NOTHING about cars, but ask me about electric guitars!)
I am terrified to take it in, because I can fix nearly anything wrong with it, but don't know if it's worth the cost to repair. I would appreciate any idea on what the issue may be so I can be a bit more knowledgeable at the repair shop. I'd like to have a ballpark idea of what it may cost to fix if at all possible. I know I may get taken advantage of if I don't go in somewhat prepared. I'm also interested in knowing how desperate the situation may be. Is it save to drive about another hundred miles with it?
I am so scared to ask this question because I am afraid of your answer. I love my car SO MUCH- please help me understand what might be wrong, and what price range I should expect so that I don't over-pay. I DESPERATELY want to keep this vehicle! I love it SO MUCH!
Thank you very much for your help! I look forward to your reply (kind of ;) ) Please TRY not to have terrible, aweful news for me! HA!
have the same problem?
