Report: Clunk Type Noise From Rear of Vehicle When Stopping
Lexus GX470 Problem
Average Mileage: 87,608 mi (45,000 mi - 150,000 mi)
A clunk type noise may be noted from the rear of the vehicle just before or just after coming to a stop. Our Technicians tell us a revised rear driveshaft and rear suspension control arms are available to correct this concern.
I have complained to Lexus each time I take my vehicle in for service and they have replaced drive shaft and arms and it still happens. They just continue to note it on my service receipt but nothing is being done about it. I am starting to keep a log with dates because this is not normal. I have never ever had this happen with another vehicle and this is the most expensive vehicle I ever purchased. I have never been so disappointed and do not think I will buy another Lexus.

14000 miles...a clunk is heard and slightly felt when coming to a stop or upon accelerating from a stop. This occurs under normal driving, no hard braking or fast starts.
Clunk sometimes when starting off and sometimes after being at a full stop. You can feel the entire truck move. Just bought the truck from local Lexus dealer and I am taking it in for repairs.
