CLUNKING NOISE

2010 Honda Civic • 12,000 miles

When I pull my car away after starting the engine in the morning, there is a subtle clunking noise coming from around the boot area.

However during the rest of the day, no such noise is observed for subsequent starts and pulling away of it.

There is also no/very little luggage in the boot on an average day.

The car has been well looked after with no history of having gone over pot holes, hard braking or handling to date. I have been the sole user and it has never been overloaded with either passengers etc.

Any advice is appreciated.

If you park at night with the hand brake on, it may be binding up when released first time due to some form of contaminate, I would get the rear brakes checked and have the hand brake cables and actuators checked for binding, start here.
