Hyundai Elantra Thupping Noise When Stopped

Asked by Aug 31, 2017 at 01:48 PM about the 2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In the last 2 weeks have noticed first thing in the morning when stopped at a red light my car starts thupping noise, almost like brakes grinding (but does not happen every time I am braking). If I turn the steering wheel left if will sometimes subside, right it will sometimes get worse. I want to take it in, but worried the noise will not be recreated and will have to explain. Has anyone experienced this issue with Elantras? I've read some boards sugguesting bolt holding the left wheel coming loose and needed to be tightened. Others say the engine?! Car has 65K miles and I feel like a lot of life left, but this noise is concerning. Otherwise car runs fine.
