I've had mine clunking for a month or two. The dealer found the main bushing cracked a couple weeks after I noticed it.

Under hard acceleration I can feel the rear axle wind up. I also get wheel hop over bumps and manhole covers if I'm accelerating like I'm still in high school.

I noticed the clunking first. When in manual mode and coming to a stop, if I let the car downshift multiple gears at once it'll clunk.

I need to swap out my sidemarkers. My LED ones are leaking. I'll swap in my clear Depos or OEM ones depending on which bulbs I can find and seal up my LEDs
