When I start the car, everytime there is a kinda loud thump , sound like its coming from the rear of the car.
Is this normal, does not seem normal, have not had a recent car make this noise. It seems louder sometimes than others, Car has 300 miles on it, SXT V6. Any ideas or does this need to go back to dealer already ?

Thanks for any and all info. Flaps

What he said. I have had them say that too and the problem is there as soon as
I left. I had to explain to them how to recreate the problem and then they
fixed it in my ex Jeep.

Guess I will call them Monday and make an appointment. It happens with every startup, so they will easily be able to hear it. So I guess you guys are saying its not normal, my son thought it might be a noisy fuel pump start up or something common to the V6. Thanks for the input,, Flaps

Did you ever find the cause of the problem.........I have the same issue in my 19 GT. Happens 1 out of 10 starts, more often after I drive it and let it sit for 20 minutes then restart it. I've been under the car a number of times. There is nothing loose, drive shaft is not moving on startup, exhaust doesn't even move. Unable to duplicate. Dealer was also unable to duplicate the condition.
.....Thanks

Took it to the Dealer again same results. I will try another Dealership but could use some support. The Service writers listen to you but they don't "hear" or understand what your saying.
