2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ralliart
Front wheel drive
Started out as a clicking sound here and there on the driver's side wheel area and after a month or two turned into loud thunking noise. Not repetitive, only heared when driving over dips ( not so much over bumps in the road ) and sometimes when I am taking a right turn ( which is odd because I would assume most of the weight would be on the passenger side wheel for a right turn?). When I brought it in the first time to have them look at it they told me it was muy cold air intake pump hitting against my engine, the mechanic told me he tied it down. But I still heard it after.
I think the dealership is trying to jerk me around because I have a 100,000KM/5 year bumper to bumper and im about 30,000KM away from the end of coverage.
I bought this car in may of 2007 so I have basically had it 6 months, I brought it in for regular service twice (oil change, replace spark plugs ) and both times asked them to check the area. Brought it in the first time when it was only clicking, the second time when the thunking noise started I brought it in the next morning right away.
I have not seen any leaking fluids, I have checked a few times to make sure.
Im getting really annoyed! I love my car and im hoping this is something small and that the dealership won't give me a whole bunch of trouble.
have the same problem?
