I bought my XC some 2.5 months ago, and apart from little nagging problems (eg headlamp condensation), I just came across another possible problem. Not sure if other XC owners experienced the same. Very briefly, whenever I turn my steering whilst stationary, or about to stop, and then accelerate (eg getting out of a junction) I hear a once off 'thumping' knocking sound from the front. If I were to accelerate gently, this sound will not arise. Strangely enough, I hear the SAME thumping sound from the REAR when I drive the 240 (RWD) whilst doing the same thing. This thumping sound DOESN'T ALWAYS happen, esp when I send the car for checking at the workshop, hence is frustrating. Any diagnosis out there? Thanks.
