Hi Darryll - I had the same "Thud sound from the left side" even from small potholes or it checked witht the Honda Service center, and turned out it was the passenger door alignment that was the problem. The issue has gone away since they fixed that. Not sure if it's the same issue for your car, but the Honda folks are your best bet.

Its not a common problem with ZX.It needs to be Inspected thoroughly.

I had the same issue of the steering not coming back to the orignal position . Usually happens if the car had some work done fir the steering . I was unable to get it resolved.

Better you check it with the dealer itself

About the steering there is a problem,please get it checked.
About the left side sound.Please get your car checked ie,suspension. It should not happen.
If you are going at a very high speed and your front tyre falls in a big pith then the sound appears.
This is because of so many reasons may be locked your car brakes while falling in the pith.If you have not done this then there is a problem.
