UK here, I have an I30 2011, I bought it second hand in 2018, it had a light pull to the left but nothing major, it has passed MOTs, had alignment, new tyres and tracking all done, in the last 3 months the pull has got worse and it shudders when reversing and turning and in the last few days if I'm idle the front left makes a shuddering noise too. Like I say I've has the tracking and tyres looked at but it's not them, wondering if it might be the steering column? Has anyone else had this?

This sounds distinctly to me like a CV joint/halfshaft/driveshaft/whatever your local term for it is. I'd look into that first and foremost, or potentially a wheel bearing but I doubt it.

Evening team, I've not got an issue with pulling left but my 14 i30 tourer had a low drone (but load enough to drown out the radio) on the front left tonight on the motor way.

It was also accompanied by a burning rubber smell!!

However after a brief rest during the return journey no noise no smell. I'm checking the hub n all tomorrow  :crazy1:

All been checked, taken to 2 separate garages to check wheels, alignment and tyres, they've both said it needs to be up and the bottom taken off to check the steering. Disnt know if anyone else had had this problem so just wanted to ask
