The vehicle has a 5-speed automatic transmission. When shifting out of park to reverse the engine makes a loud clunk sound and a brief grinding noise once the vehicle starts to move backwards. upon shifting into Drive there is no more noice to hear. This only happens when the engine is started being completely cold. No clunk or grinding noise can be heard when shifting out of Park into Reverse once the engine is warmed up.
I have a problem with street noise such as music played in other cars, other peoples' car engines, wind draft noise etc. entering the cabin while driving the vehicle and while not in motion such as waiting for the red traffic light to turn green. it seems like the door gaskets are not sealing correctly. Is there any issue with that on this model or could this also be a result of the installation of an after market sunroof ? The noise is not coming from the sunroof though, just not sure if the door frames could have been pulled during the installation ! ?
