Ride Quality

Hi Everyone,

The ride that I am getting with my 2014 Impala LT seems to getting worse. It currently has about 31K miles. It takes bumps hard and I hear a "ka boom" like noise every time I hit a bump. It's a noise that sounds like a bass drum being beat.

The car is great otherwise, but here in Massachusetts the roads are rough. Any suggestions or similar experience?

Thanks!

Rob

Take it in if possible, it is your shocks/suspension(I forget exactly what it is that is broken but Chevy will be able to tell you quickly). Our car did the same thing when I was a kid(15yrs ago, lol). If we turned too sharp or hit a bump it sounded like a boulder smashed under the body of the car, around the wheel well.
