Just wanted to see if anyone else shared this experience, or had a clue about what's going on.
Over 7,000 miles, I've had zero issues with my Model 3. But this weekend as we were taking a longish drive, there was a sudden odd noise from below decks -- like the sound you might get if you ran over a tree branch, or a chunk of tire -- only there was nothing in the road. A few minutes later it happened again, strong enough that I could feel the vibrations through the floor. Concerned that something was seriously wrong, I cut our drive short and headed home, but there were no warning lights and no issues. Then this morning it did it a third time. Clear street, low speed, and suddenly buzz-thump, again making a strong enough vibration that I could feel it through my feet.
I've experienced slight noises before having to do with warming / cooling the battery, but these felt considerably more noticeable and they happened several miles into a drive on a mild day. Any ideas? Thanks.
