I had the same problem last year during the winter but it went away once it warmed up and hasn't returned since....knock on wood...not sure if it has anything to do with the cold weather. I was not driving the car much last winter then but now try to drive it at leasts 3 times a week.

Im not sure what the weather has to do with it, but it sounds like the front sway arm bracket(s) has either come loose or fallen off.

My bump arrived when the weather got warmer. Taking it back to the dealer to have it checked out. I hope its something easy. Still under the used car warranty so I'll let you know what they find.
