I get the same thing, but only when it hits the stop. If it is a noise when your not hitting the stop you might want to get that checked out.

hitting what stop? I get it when I crank the wheel to go into a curve in my driveway, no brakes, about 5-7 mph in reverse, cold engine, usually started less than 5 minutes prior.

=/ What sucks is I can't mimick it because it never happens once the engine is warm, maybe if I left it at the dealership over night one night then showed them early in the AM =/

I get a clunk when I hit the wheel stops on full left or right turns. Believe that to be normal, though it is much louder in this car than any of the other 11 cars I have owned.

Good question, why did they move this to the SPI lounge??
