    the crunchy lie noise is only on rough roads in Mexico where I drove the car. Thge mechanics said I shoulrd replace the cvu joints in the front and rear of the car.I did not notice any problem when driving thge car in California.The VW dealership hear said the cost of repacement would be $2300 USD including $500 for the parts and approx. $450 for labor os EACH suspension

  • bared1 Jul 27, 2009

    please reply. Mechanics in Mexico where I drove the car now,said that the suspension needed to be replaced costing $2400 USD dollars ,$470 for work on each suspension(total of $1880) and $550 for the parts. Since the niosr occurs only when driving on rough roads do you think it would be O.K. to drive the car back to C alfornia and have it checked there.

You say rough roads make it make noise. I would say the problem is with the struts. When they move they make a crunch noise on rough roads. Try spraying with a dry silicone lub, spray all moving parts of struts. The cvc joints may be going bad, you can check yourself by grabbing axel and turning back and forth, you should not have alot of play in them, you will also hear them clunk if bad or going bad. Last thing jack up car and grab wheel from top and bottom and see if there is any movement by wiggling back and forth. If so hubs could be going bad or tie rod ends.

The car must be jacked up and supported under the frame with jack stands after this proceed to grab the wheel with one hand in the back and one hand in the front try to move the wheel back and forth on a horizontal plane like you are trying to turn the steering with the tire, wiggle it back and forth vigorously if you can have an assitant look at the outer tie rods on the inner side of the wheels from under the front of the car this will be helpful to see if there is any play or loosness (movement in the suspension rods / arms) , then do the same thing on a latitudal plane, then proceed to take a tire iron or bar an slide it under the tire lift up on the tire or have an assistant do this and observe the suspension for loosness or movement and noise. If no loosness is detected and the the noise occurs on a bumpy road and does not show up visually during the aforemention checks I described it is most likely the front strut bumpers they loosen up over time and make a banging or knocking sound as you travel over rough roads. If the noise occurs when you are turning only, the CVU joints for one side or both are worn.

Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.

Front end rattle when going over bumps just changed the rotors and brakes noise still there.


At 36,000 miles I had to have my rack and pinions replaced. Problem fixed. At 84,000 miles I had the front tie rods replaced and new front tires. Still has the noise. Now I find out it is suspension and bushings. I still love the car though.

Does the CEL come on at certain mile markers? Last night my 2002 KIA had its CEL come one as I hit 65000 miles. Car feels to be running perfectly fine. Is it just letting me know it needs its 65000 mile...


Hello! The CEL is the check engine light. When it illuminates it means your Kia has a trouble code. It is not related to a service mileage point.

Take your Rio to an auto parts store and ask for a free code check.
When you find out what trouble code or codes are being generated, send a comment to this solution and I will be more than happy to define and troubleshoot your problem.

Air Suspension


I feel your pain as I am a loyal Land Rover customer and have had a bad one in the past. Your car has many demons. Air suspension compressors do fail but there are many other parts in the system. The tire sensors are not essential.
