I just bought a 1999 Toyota Corolla, 117,296 miles, 4-cylinder engine. When I back out of my driveway and drive over the little edge at the street, or when I drive over bumps in a road, or the little reflectors in the middle of a the road, there is a strong "bump" noise and feeling. It feels like the car fell off a much high bump, such as 8" or so, but these are 2" and 3" bumps in rough spots on roads. I think it is the front end. I didn't notice this when I test drove the car. Otherwise, the ride is very smooth and nice; no dips or sways, no shakes or rattles (just a very slight vibration when idling, very very slight). Do you know what might cause this, and how much it might cost to fix? Thanks very much.
have the same problem?
