my 2011 Outback 6 speed manual intermittently makes a thumping noise when turning or backing up and turning. Seems more often when the car is hot, like pulling into a gas station after driving hiway

Asked by Aug 11, 2018 at 04:59 PM about the 2011 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've had the car looked at twice.  One mechanic wanted to do bearings on all 4
wheels, one thought a stone was caught between the brake plate, but it came
back after he made a bit more space.  My boyfriend thinks it has to do with the
differential.  Anyone else ever have this problem?  what is it?

Possibly bad motor mounts or differential mounts.
