    My Auto Redline has done around 12k and overall its been great with a few issues already resolved by the dealer. Over the last few weeks I have noticed a thud sound coming from the driveline (not a metallic sound), possibility diff area. I can recreate it on any left turn slip lane where you slow down to check for oncoming traffic and as you accelerate out of the turn the thud sound occurs even under light acceleration.

    Any one experience this with VE/VF models? is this normal or cause for concern?

    My VF Redline is an auto. No thud or similar noise in the driveline anywhere. It doesn't sound normal to me.

    Seems to be a more common problem. The diff has a lot of wind up and a vibration. I think the torque converter in the auto dampens/compensates a bit.

    Mine is manual, Ive done 23,000km and no thud like this at all. Be worth getting your dealer to check it out.
