I started noticing fairly loud noise from the suspension when car goes over speed breakers or potholes. Louder in case of potholes.
The noise is almost like mettle surfaces grinding with each other.
Does anyone here have experience dealing with this issue?
Here is how i am able to reproduce this noise:
1. lower one of the rear seats so you can hear the noise more clearly
2. slowly drive over those small speed breakers, let front wheel go past the speed breaker and slightly speed up right after front wheels go past the speed breakers.
3. this will cause the rear wheels to bounce up and down a little harder. This results in the noise from under the trunk area.
I took the car to Tesla and they replaced the damper. But as soon as I picked up the car from repair, i heard that sound on my way back home.
I took the car right back to Tesla. This time the technician said they can't do anything else. Some noises from suspension are normal.
I find that hard to believe that a $57k car making such sound on a speed breakers is normal.
Since Tesla has given up on this, I want to know what are my options.
