What Ive experienced was clunking noise at very low speeds and when I lifted one corner of the car by hand (balancing it left to right).

It had also some kind of strut stiction because when I lifted, by hand, one corner of the car, the height of that corner didnt returned to the initial position (I measured 10-15 mm difference), the strut piston was sticking.

I think that there are other users that experienced the same problem.

Ive made a complaint to them and I got a refund.
Thanks for your sharing, I also suspect that its the struts causing the problem.
