    I have a 2016 RT that has a clunking sound when coasting to a stop. The sound is heard from the 33 to 27 mph range and again from 13 to 7 mph. Just checking to see if anyone else has experienced this with the 8 speed transmission. The mileage is only at 700 miles.

    I would definitely bring it back to the dealer for a check up. I have the same car and no noises when slowing down. Good luck.

    I have a 2016 RT with the 8 speed and do not have any noise.

    I have a 2016 R/T Plus 8 speed, dealer updated TCM, PCM &HVAC modules. Now transmission shifts hard and after coming to a complete stop it downshifts where you think you just got rear ended.

    I recently posted that I had no noise when stopping. I now have about 2100 miles on my car and tonite I came to a quicker stop than usual and it sounded like the tyranny downshifted hard into first gear. So I tried to replicate. The sound in sport mode and couldn't do it. I'm wondering if it's because of the tighter settings? But then again I couldn't make it do it in regular mode after that...

    I have a 2015 SXT that does the same, it also happens when braking at low speed. I was wondering what it might be before it goes in for its service next week. Any ideas? Mine has 4300km on the clock but it started after the last service.

    Sorry to say I don't know what it could be. Have them check the universal joints, that's the only thing that won't cost you anything right now. Mine only did it a couple of times so an educated guess is all I have. Good luck and keep us updated.

    Although, you still are under warranty so have them do everything they can while it's covered. I used to do warranty work and if they're busy with paying customers be prepared to get delayed quite a bit. Good luck
