Also, do you guys routinely shift to neutral before you shut the car off? It's not necessary. When you shut it off (if the key's not in the ignition) it will go to P automatically regardless if you're in D1 R N or 1.
The exhaust noise you described is exactly what I'm hearing.

And thanks for the shut-off info. Yes, I have been shifting into N before turning the car off.
