What speed do you hear the thump? 12 MPH? If so, it's just the ABS self-test.
Yes. It pulses the ABS pump to confirm everything's working. Your car does all kinds of self-tests when starting up. This is just a louder actuating system than most other cars it seems.My car does the exact same thing at 12! Dealership told me the same thing but why the heck is it so loud?! Like is the noise really necessary?
