I have this same noise... Like a playing card in the spokes of a bicycle wheel.

Re: Rear Axle Groan??

My first 2011 had this issue at 5mph and the dealer replaced the whole rear axle and wheel bearing and drive shafts and then the transfer case trying to get rid of this noise. It nice to see that nearly 3 years later they have a software flash out to take care of the problem.

K950 - Were you able to get this repaired? I took mine to dealer and the sound isnt happening as it's intermittent -- the service techs cant replicate the issue.

Was the dealer able to identify the cause of noise for you?

Sorry for the delay. The day I was taking it to the dealer it stopped. Not a sound. Called the dealer & told them no reason to come by. Since then I haven't heard a thing!

You know funniest thing.... The day before I took mine to the dealer mine stopped making this noise... Since then it can't be replicated.

I guess it's just something to do with break-in period?

Re: Rear Axle Groan??

Anyone still having this issue? I've always noticed a rubbing/grinding noise when costing on a flat surface starting at 8mph when the car starts to decelerate on its own down to about 5mph, yet the dealer can never reproduce and when I go to show them I can't get it to happen...
