    Had my car for about 3 weeks now, but finding its got a annoying knocking noise from suspension when going over speed bumps etc. ive got about 6 on road to my house and as you can imagine its getting annoying.
    Suspension is hard, but not to a point of being too much.
    Could the transit packaging be left in still? I had heard something about this happening on new leons.

    Any ideas??

    cars an 07 ex demonstrator with about 5,000miles on clock

    Cheers

    funny you should mention i heard a noise a couple times when i went over un-avoidable pot holes, ever since then i havent and i slow to a crawl to go over them! or re-position my car to avoid them when driving.

    but if u got them on your road, you could write to council if they will contribute towards wear & tear of your car suspension. lol nottin much more u can do.

    S-line road noise, and suspension noise, just seems to go with the territory.
    The suspension noise on mine has to be heard to be believed, but it's normal.
    I just turn the stereo up...
