Hello,
We've had our RAV4 since Oct. Of '06, and usually when we back out of the driveway and stop and put the car in D, there is a clunking noise from the rear of the car. It occurs after the car has sat overnight, and rarely does it after being driven around running errands, etc.

I've asked the dealer about it, they kept it overnight and found nothing wrong and suggested it is the rear brakes.

It sounds more harsh than just brakes, so I'd like a 2nd opinion.

Thanks,
Td

A close order inspection should be made on the driveline from point A to B -could be a universal joint/s, center bearing, excessive play on the output shaft.
