Exclamation Knocking Noise

When I pull my TL out of the driveway in the same spot every time as i put it in gear and go a few feet forward it makes a knocking noise in the front end that you can hear and feel through the floorboard... The closest dealer is 1hr 20min away . This kinda sucks I've had it for 4 weeks now and its only got 240 miles on it, the car sits in the garage.

My 6MT TL doesn't do that but our MDX sure does. My guess is that it is the front brake pads shifting inside the caliper. Driving in reverse pushes them back then going forward pushes them forward. It only happens when cold so maybe there is slight expansion of the pads as they heat up.

Its normal. That is the ABS kicking in. All TLs do that. My 2nd gen TL did the same thing.

The same noise has been reported in the Accord V6 because I do believe the set ups are the same.
I too have the same noise when going from reverse to forward on my manual TL 05.
I wouldn't worry.

I have an 05 TL, and it does the same thing. At first I thought that it was the power steering kicking in. But now that you mention the ABS, that makes more sense. I had an 01 Type R, and it did the same exact thing, in the same exact spot in the driveway every day. The R is more of a whirring sound, where the TL is more of a clunk.

i believe the noise actually comes from ABS. i have untested feeling that it may be linked to the VSA. try leaving with VSA off and see what happens.... i may be wrong about this......
