Jeep Patriot 2013 clunk 5 mph

Searched the forum for this particular clunk thread, couldn't find it so posting a new thread. Bought the jeep patriot 2013 used with 13,000 miles on it. From day one it has made a clunk at 5mph. I don't know where the sound is coming from for sure. I am guessing the transmission. The noise occurs 100% when I first start to drive it when it has been sitting overnight or for a couple of hours. I turn the key press on the gas and 'coast'(not pressing on the gas) up to 5 mph when I hear the clunk under the car. Does anyone know if this is normal or if the dealer is going to tell me this is normal. I have 2.4l engine cvt transmission. thank you in advance.

The dealer said:
Noise is coming from the throttle body going thru its self check ..the electric throttle body will adjust the blade for normal driving. The said they test drove several jeep 014 patriots they do the same thing and this is normal. I searched the world wide web couldn't find anything related to the dealers answer. Does anyone know anything about this subject to confirm the dealers answer? thank you in advance...

Some klunk sounds are related to the parking brake cable which I heard can be re-routed to fix.
