I just had the first service done on my 2019 RTL-T yesterday at 9400 miles. Since about 3000 miles I’ve had a problem with a loud pop or clunk coming from the front suspension.
It is noticeable when I am backing up the first time I hit the brakes. It will occurs again once I start moving forward again and hit the brakes. It is very loud. My wife knows nothing about cars and even she asked if the truck was alright.
The dealership told me it was pad shift because the pads were designed to expand in the heat and they all did this. They called it “pad shift”.
I’ve owned almost 2 dozen cars, both new and very used. This is the first vehicle I’ve ever owned that did this. It does not sound normal.

is this actually normal or do I need to escalate the problem?

If you search this forum for "reverse brake click" or "reverse brake clunk", you'll find that it's normal for all Ridgelines. It's the brake pads shifting in the calipers.
Thanks, I noticed this one mine and was wondering the same thing.
