SR+ metalic sounding thunk when accelerating from a slow roll

I just booked an appointment with my local service center to look at my car. I've had it for 3 months. During that time I've heard a loud metallic thunk on four or five occasions when accelerating briskly from a slow roll. My son was outside the car when it happened last night and said "that sounded bad". Has anyone else had a similar issue? The car seems to be driving fine and not making unusual drive train or suspension noises other than those handful of "thunks".

You've probably checked this already, but if not: Anything loose in the trunk well underneath the cover? For the longest time, I forgot I even had that space.

Good idea @diegoPasadena. Unfortunately the trunk well is empty as is my trunk. The thunk was loud enough for my adult son to hear it clearly from 100 yards away.

Rear axle . Known issue. Take it in for service.
