Hyundai Santa Fe 2012-2018 DM 2.2L Diesel, Our Customer Reports A Thumping Rotational Noise From The Rear Differential Area While Driving In A Straight Line

Smooth Drives Await: How Regular Servicing Saved the Day for a Hyundai Santa Fe

We've all been there – that unsettling thumping noise coming from the rear differential area of your Hyundai Santa Fe 2012-2018 DM 2.2L Diesel while cruising in a straight line. It's a hiccup that can turn your ride into a real head-scratcher. But there's good news! Abbotts Auto Care is here to show you why regular servicing is your ticket to a peaceful journey.

When the Road Gets Bumpy

Imagine you're behind the wheel of your reliable Hyundai Santa Fe, and there it is, that mysterious thumping noise from the rear differential area. It's enough to make anyone nervous. But don't worry; you're not alone.

One of our customers came to us with the same issue. Not only was there a thumping noise when driving straight, but while turning, one of the rear wheels would jump, accompanied by a loud clicking noise. It's the kind of trouble that can keep you up at night.

Getting to the Bottom of It

At Abbotts Auto Care, we're all about tackling car troubles head-on. We kicked things off by inspecting the rear brakes and the differential, trying to find the source of this noise. But the real revelation came when we unplugged the power wire to the rear differential coupling and took the car for an extensive test drive. The result? Silence. The noise was gone, but the mystery remained.

A Solution at Hand

To ensure our customer could hit the road with confidence, we replaced the rear differential coupling unit with a genuine Hyundai part. And just like that, the problem was solved. The thumping and clicking were history.

The Magic of Regular Servicing

This story underscores the importance of regular servicing. It's not about pushing you; it's about persuading you that servicing can save you from unexpected troubles. In this case, it saved our customer from unnecessary worries and expenses.

At Abbotts Auto Care, we're not just experts; we're your partners in keeping your vehicle running smoothly. Trust us for all your car needs, and hit the road with peace of mind. With regular servicing, you're in control of your journey!
