Hi,

I collected my new focus 1.8 TDCi (59 plate, <15000 miles) 3 weeks ago.
I am now noticing that EVERY time I start the car and move off, within 5- 10 seconds, I can hear a dull clunk from what I think is the undercarriage (reminds me of a cable slapping onto the underside of the car). On occasion, I can feel the noise "kick" up the accelerator pedal.
I am a complete novice with cars and how they work, and will be looking to take it back into the garage- but can anyone give me an idea of what I might be hearing/ feeling?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

cheers

Graeme
