A very loud noise heard for a fraction of time in my right ear when driving.

Asked by Jun 15, 2015 at 06:34 AM about the 2014 Hyundai Elantra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Today I was driving my car that I heard a very loud noise similar to burst, in my right ear. I
really do not know from where this noise came from because I could not find any damage
on the car and I am sure I did not hit anything. I am afraid it was because of an error in
curtain airbag.
Do you think I need to take the car for a check?

Is the air bag light or any warning lights on? It is possible the noise was external, some older rig backfiring during downshifting or it is possible that you did hit something on the road underneath your vehicle, it wouldn't take anything very big to make a noise like that. If you are really concerned about it, then take it in, better safe than sorry later.

I agree with the guy wearing the sneakers.
