My 2015 451 sometimes does this when I pull into my garage and put it in park. Seems like if I turn off the ignition while still in drive and then put it in park there is no thunk sound but if the engine is still running I get the sound. I know nothing about cars but this is concerning. The car only has 17000 miles on it. Should I be worried? Bought it used from Carmax last year. The noise does not happen every time but it worries me. Thanks for any help.

Is this not the same thing that would happen if you turn off the engine while still in drive and then put it in park? I hate to think the parking pawl would be in trouble at slightly under 17000 miles. However, I don't really know how it was treated by the previous owner.
