I just bought a new 2012 Golf 2.5L (base model) last weekend and noticed a THUMP THUMP THUMP sound that I was hoping somebody could identify.
- Only occurs in the first minute or so of driving, and only when the car starts cold (hasn’t been driven for 10+ hours)
- Continues to occur if I entirely stop the car (haven’t tried turning engine off though…)
- Sounds like it comes from around the rear passenger-side suspension area
- Somewhat irregular THUMP sound. Pretty loud, especially if I get out of the car and go to the rear wheel area. It doesn’t occur at a constant rate, it’s more like: THUMP THUMP THUMPTHUMPTHUMP THUMP THUMP …
What’s going on here?
