On Saturday I bought a 2009 Santa Fe Ltd from a used car

Customer Question

Good morning, on Saturday I bought a 2009 Santa Fe Ltd from a used car dealership. Last night the check engine light came on. Also, we test drove the car up to 45 mph, but on the tollway at about 55/60 there's a kind of loud, regular sound coming from the right front like something is off-balance or uneven. I'm not sure what, if any, recourse I have if I take it in to the place I bought it. They do have a decent reputation and their own shop. They also do what seems to be a pretty thorough check of the car and make repairs before selling it. Any thoughts? The car is great and appears well maintained.
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: Last night it was steady, haven't tried it this morning.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Myself? Well, uh no . . .
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No

no code reader, I just bought it Saturday, I'm more concerned really with the rhythmic kind of "thumping" in the right front. it kind of blends in with the engine noise,
