It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.

I have a similar issue on my 2001 F250. Apparently there is a technical bulletin that describes cleaning the hubs to prevent small plastic engagement lugs within the hubs from partially engaging the hubs without being "instructed" to engage. This causes bearing-like vibration & noise. We cleaned my hubs at a local truck & car service shop (owned by neighbor) and the problem went away for 1 week. Its back now same as before. I don't have a solution and am thinking about trashing the factory hubs and going with maunal Warn hubs or equivalent. Anybody else have any solutions?

SOURCE: I have A 1998 XK8.
has someone worked on the car in that area? either way it sounds like a loose connection in the rear of the radio, or worse in the radio, so as most car fires are caused by defective radios i would suggest the radio is removed and checked for the fault
