Brand new 2019 Trackhawk, have about 1,300 miles on it now and it has developed a distinct clunk sound when putting the car into drive or reverse and lightly pushing the gas or accelerating.

Sounds like it is coming from the drivers rear, pulled the wheel off to check the wheel nut, upper and lower control arm bolts and bushings, roll bar end links, got under the car and checked body mounts, rear end pumpkin mounts, driveshaft bolts for rear pumpkin etc. and nothing seems to be loose, don't see any wear or binding. Sometimes I can hear it while driving as well, but can always replicate it when putting the car in reverse and a little torque is supplied to the driveline, then placing into drive and applying torque to drive away and clunk again as soon as it starts rolling.

What gives? Anyone else run into this or notice this clunk noise? Thank you!

I heard of a few people having heat shielding slightly out of place and that leads to a multitude of noises

It might be the transfer case. It sounds like you have some slop in your driveline somewhere which explains the “thud” sound when stopping and shifting from park to drive.

Might want to check out this thread:

Let us know what you find out.

Thank you! Checked that thread out, seems like lot's of people had the same issue but nobody ever updated what the issue, cause or fix was :(

If it is the TC, then there is no fix... they just replace them. I know none of us want to go back to the dealer, but what you're describing sounds very pronounced, and that is not normal.

Mine does the same thing. When going from drive to reverse you get a thud. I told dealer about it and they said it’s normal. Hopefully they at least noted it on the account. Incase something happens.
Probably going to bring to another dealer to have them look at. Just to make sure before modifications begin.

Took it to dealer last week, went for drive with the tech, showed him how to reproduce it every time. He, said yeah I definitely hear that, haven't heard that before...

Kept car for two days, came back and said car is done, it's completely normal characteristics! FML

Same problem with my 2020, been doing it since day one. Dealer says normal, but I don’t buy it. Hoping someone will find out something, its a little nerve racking coming from a brand new 90k vehicle!

Just a thought but has anyone checked the brake rotor bolts on our two piece rotors? I know on my race car after a few good heat cycles on a new rotor and bolts they need to be torqued again and sometimes a third time before they fully seat and maintain torque
