I occasionally hear a very loud and deep vibration from the rear when I take turns from a dead stop. Has anybody else noticed this?

My '11 does this on tight turns when accelerating from a stop. I passed it off as power transfer or driveline binding (that is released through the clutches/diffs eventually).

That's what I was thinking. I was initially worried that it was something more severe but it doesn't happen all the time. If it is something bad it should destroy itself long before the warranty period is up. I'm not worried.

I'm over 12,000 miles with no issues. I have one turn that I make almost daily where I get that sound.

I get it going both ways. At first I thought that the Hall & Oates I was listening to was bass heavy.

sounds like it's the norm as i have this issue as well. although i don't understand why it does it as my other awd previous vehicles never made a peep.

I'm sure it's the same thing that everybody hears. It doesn't happen under hard acceleration for me. If the turn is on an incline I'll usually hear it. I'm curious if it will eventually wear off as time goes on but it probably won't. I'm not concerned as it's really just a noise.
