SOURCE: Rear End in a 2000 silverado moning whenever I turn a corner.

I would suggest a rear differential service. When the fluid breaks down in the rear it doesn't provide the proper lubrication for the rear and you'll hear the "moan". Don't forget to buy and add the limited slip(posi-trac) additive.

As far as the rear end noise, There was a TSB released on GMC light duty trucks that says "Some owners of light duty trucks equipped with automatic transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise when ******* between Park and Drive, Park and Reverse, or Drive and Reverse... Whenever there are two or more gears interactin with one another, there must be a certain amount of clearance between those gears in order for the gears to operate properly. This clearance of freeplay (also known as lash) can translate into a clunk noise whenever the gear is loaded and unloaded quickly, or whenever the direction of rotation is reversed." It goes onto say "...Whilse some owners may find the clunk objectionable, this will not adversely affect durability or performance."

You need to get under there and look at the exhaust system, see if it's loose, and the rear shocks to see if one is broke off it's bolts.

SOURCE: I have a 2015 kia optima. Thumping noise in rear when going forward. Louder when going slow. Just inspected last week. Help.

It's a new car - don't sweat it - just take it back to the dealer for warranty repairs.

2015 kia sorento rear liftgate will not close when you press button on bottom of liftgate. how does this switch come out to test it!

Did you google it? It has to come out! What are you going to do - replace the entire liftgate? Ridiculous.

Check with Kia if you cannot get the answer.

How do I fix my Auto 2015 DMAX 4WD, it has a shudder when you come to a stop and take off

if you can inspect around the bell housing drain hole for oil drips it will point to a clutch problem
what you describe is oil on the clutch plate from an oil seal leaking ( rear main or clutch input shaft) not enough to slip but enough to make the plate grab or stick to the flywheel or pressure plate
run the fault codes for the rough running problem as it could be injectors , fuel pressure or vacuum leaks
Take it to an accredited brake and clutch specialist shop for a proper diagnosis of the clutch if not under warranty but you say hat it is 2015 model so it may be still a warranty problem
Be careful here as the service shop may say that clutches are not under warranty but there is an implied warranty that the vehicle will last more than 1 year if it has a warranty period
if it is refused , take it up with the company head office and if no success get a lawyer in as vehicles and clutches last more than 12 months

When turning a tight turn at low speed car shudders from rear wheels

thats not good, we see this quite often on the subaru's, the rear differantal has a posi track unit in it. what this is, is a drive unit that allowes both rear wheel to apply engine power to the ground, most cars have only one drive wheel but your car has two so there is a set of clutches inside the differantal and when you go around a corner the clutches release to allow one wheel to spin free it has to do this because the outside wheel has to turn faster then the inside wheel, now with all that said your clutches are not releasing that is why you are getting the sudder, the first thing to do is have the fluid changed in the rear end and make sure they install fluid made for posi track rear ends, then give it a little wile ( like a 100 miles or so ) and if it comes out of it great but if not you will need to have the clutches changed, it around a $1000.00 job......good luck

take your car to a brake shop and have the rotors turned if your vibration and shuddering is occurring when you actually apply the brakes.
