Sound heard when starting from full stop.

Hello. We have a 2012 model recently acquired. I took it to the Nissan dealer and got a inspection and, other than a couple of recalls fixes, everything seemed fine. My question is about a metallic single click or sound coming from the car on initial acceleration from stop. It almost sounds like a universal joint noise. Is this normal? The car seems to run fine otherwise. Thanks!

There is a TSB on the axle splines that should apply. I think they start by greasing the splines and installing and torquing new axle nuts.

Common problem. Some grease and couple of washers I think is the fix. I believe Service bulletin NTB12-055 addresses it but not sure.
