...and fell some thumping. What.. and the the traction and abs light comes on. What could this be and what is a reasonbale price range to get it fixed? The vehicle drives smoothly overall especially when I am going straight. However, when I am turning it makes a subtle clumping sound and I can feel it in the brakes when stopping and in the gas pedal when accelerating. Does anyone have any suggestions.

It could be the wheel bearing/hub assembly if the lights are coming on, since that's where the ABS sensor is.

Get it to a reputable repair shop ASAP before it leaves you stranded somewhere.

CV joint(s) failing. About $100 to $150 per side.

It will not get better, only worse. Get it in before you are stranded.

I would bet a nickel that there's corrosion buildup between the ABS sensor and the wheel bearing assembly, causing it to send a false signal to the ABS module and activating the ABS.

Pull the sensor out, clean the fuzz off the top of the hub and the sensor, light film of grease, reassemble and retest.
