When I start my G after it's been in the garage all night, I get a little bit of what sounds like lifter ticking/clatter. Its minor, and goes away nearly instantly, but I never had it in my Cayenne prior to the G, in an ML before that, but did have it in my Jeep GC I had years ago. I shouldn't worry too much, as that Jeep is still on the road with the subsequent owner and has nearly 200K miles and no engine work per se.

As an aside, I didn't think much of it, as the loaner R350 I had a couple months back had the same clatter on startup, and it was an '07 with 3K miles.

Is a little noise at startup normal/common, or should I be taking it to the dealer before my warranty runs out?
