sounds like the abs and or traction control is activating.could just be a wheel speed sensor or the control unit mouted in the engine compartment on the passenger side.has a bunch of hydraulic lines on it and is a shinny aluminum block with a black electrical box on it.you just have to replace the black box if that is what is defective but needs to be coded at the dealer.do you have any test equipment?mutimeter,test light anything like that?

check for the wheel alignment. that can be a cause of those sounds.
