My new Kuga went into the garage this morning to get several things sorted on it, and I took the opportunity to mention what I think is a problem.



Approximately 1 minute after starting the car and driving off a noise occurs (of about 1 sec), along with a feeling under your foot on the accelerator.


The garage told me this morning that it's the ABS/traction control activating/doing a self check, and that it's completely normal.





However I don't remember it being there from new (3rd Sept) - I've only noticed it in the past week.



Does everyone elses car do this, or is there something wrong with mine?

It could be that I didn't notice it from new because I had the radio on and therefore couldn't hear the noise, or couldn't feel it under my foot because of whatever footwear I had on.



Any info appreciated.

Hi TwiggyB123
It's normal, yes it is the ABS doing a self check. You'll find it triggers a test at 15 mph when you first moveoff after starting the engine.

To be honest championkuga had mine five months and was getting concerned as I have never felt any ABS test like your other half either.?

To be honest I haven't noticed it somuch myself lately so maybe it has stopped or I am getting used to it? Perhaps it is a new car thing?

Hmm i find it worrying that some folk are and some folk are not feeling this because its quite an obvious thing and as stated in earlier posts happens at 15mph after initial set off. hmmm weird.

Just found this thread, mine does the exact same,
Was starting to worry there was a issue with my car
Interesting how some kugas do and some don't make this clonking noise
In my opinion, it shouldn't do it at all

Mine (a 62 plate zetec awd) has always done this and it is very noticable. I wish it didnt to be honest. I just dont understand when it does it. No other car I've had in including our 2010 tit fiesta have done this.
