Thud sound upon stopping

Has anyone else experienced a slight thud sound when coming to a stop? It appears to be coming from the front end and/ or breaking system.

Go BIG or go home!

Is this more prevalent in track mode? I’ve noticed the downshift to 1st can be a tad abrupt but I don’t know about a thud.

Dealer has had it all week and said they came up with the spare tire being loose. Got it back and at the first red light 1000 feet from the dealership the pop was still there. I was so pissed. The sound is happening while coming to a stop or when placing in gear from drive to reverse or back & forth. Also we are in upper 80 to 90 degree weather. I don't have a clue. I do know the spare tire was still loose and the plastic retainer which holds it down is cheap! Anyone please????

Go BIG or go home!

It sounds like your driveline and not your brakes to me. I would ask the service advisor to take a ride with you so you can demonstrate it for him. I would ask them to check your 4-wheel drive transfer case and/or your differentials. It sounds like you have some slop in your driveline somewhere which explains the “thud” sound when stopping and shifting from park to drive.

My spare tire plastic retainer was loose too, but it made a squeaking sound when hitting the brakes hard and not a “thud” sound. It was easy to figure out and once I tightened it down, it went right away.

Sorry you are experiencing this, and I hope this helps.

Took a ride this morning with the service manager and he heard the sound. Taking it back Monday, he thinks it is something loose hitting the bottom of the vehicle. I guess we will see!

Update today! Dealer has ordered a new drive line. With only 1300 miles I am worried. If this doesn't correct it they will be giving me a new one as I made that clear with dealer ownership today!!
