We recently aqcuired a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, automatic transmission with low mileage. We immediately experienced a metallic clanking sound when switching from drive to reverse, and vice verse, and also experience the noise at times while pushing the gas pedal.
Does anyone else experience this? We're wondering if this is "normal" for the Challenger, or if we need to have the car serviced.

Most likely suspects are transmission, driveshaft, differential, rear suspension, or brakes .If you are unable to diagnose yourself get it diagnosed before a component fails or damages other components. Good luck and please let us know the outcome.

probably the rear differential pinion bushing. But if you are not a DIY guy I would take it in to a shop and have them take a look.

I have a 2009 Challenger SRT with low mileage and the problem that you described is not normal. Better get it looked at.
