My 2019 is less than 90 days old with almost 2,000 miles on it. I've been hearing a faint clunk every once in a while. I thought it was coming from the front passenger area. A quick inspection of the suspension with the wheel off shows nothing obvious. I have yet to be able to reproduce the issue consistently. I'll try hitting bumps while turning to see if it's similar to what jdcbomb has posted.
The charging port door froze closed once. A subsequent treatment of the gasket material with Krytox seems to have helped. My car gets washed as soon as possible after a snowstorm, so I definitely get water all over the place.
No other issues worth bringing up. I really like the car. Better than my 2015.
I took my Leaf in for the clunk and I don't know if it's been resolved or not. The dealership's response was that the lug nuts weren't tight enough. The service writer gave me a TSB printout showing that the lug nuts need to be at 83 ft/lbs. That torque setting is exactly what the hard copy owner's manual calls for. I used a torque wrench when mounting my winter wheels and I used the 83 ft/lbs. If the clunk is really gone then A) why wasn't it present on all four wheels, B) I need to calibrate my torque wrench, C) next time I'll just use 90.
UPDATE: I drove on some rough dirt roads at low speed. The clunk is NOT gone.
