Question

Car feels like I ran over something on quick acceleration

My vehicle (suv) feels like I drove over something on a fast acceleration from a stop. This only happens when stopped and a quick acceleration. If I accelerate slowly it doesnt happen. Everything else seems fine. No check engine light on and 300,000 kms on vehicle.

I have another issue.

But when this sort of thing happens my mechanic has it up on the rack to push, pull on suspension and drive train parts to see if there is movement or give where there shouldn't be or visible signs of the issue.

reading this again, I have different opinion

It sounds more like a failing CV joint since this starts on acceleration from a stop,which puts the most strain on such joint.

Answer
Acceleration

Is this something that you hear, or feel? Or both. Have your mechanic check for a broken motor mount or transaxle mount.
Good luck.

Need a check

I am agree, you need mechanic check for your car. I think that all you need is few spare parts. And go to diagnostic to be sure.
