it shouldn't make a clunking noise if you set your side brake before
putting into P after the drive and brake the car hard before moving
the shifter from P to D (or R). give it 2-3 seconds before releasing
the brake and roll out.

At the reverse position the tranny gets a thump/klunk. Im sure this is not good for it but i dont know what else to do. This is my wifes car. Idont have an issue with manual tranny.
are there alternatives to turn the car off or start it ?
Im not sure this alternative is any better (not tried yet)
When in car do not start, but insert key to slot above to shifter to move the shifter to Neutral and then start the car and let it roll down hill then only put it in gear
