Shakes or Wobbles problem
2005 Kia Rio 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles
I have a 2005 Kia Rio Wagon, Automatic. Recently I noticed whenever I am coasting (let off the accelerator from ANY rpm) there is a knocking (And if slow enough a knock-then-short-grind) that is consistent with the vehicles speed and it is definitely coming from the front drivers side. Also, whenever braking FIRMLY (not hard, just firm) the vehicle will slow smoothly, then eventually shudder then proceed to slow down smoothly again. I checked the CV boot and it is entirely in-tact, the rotors are smooth and not worn. The car was recently in an accident (I rear ended someone at 30mph). The car drives fine, accelerates fine, makes no noise when accelerating gently or hard, this is ONLY when letting off the gas. Any ideas guys?
