Loosey, Goosey AWD

I just purchased an 06 Magnum Hemi with All Wheel Slop, I mean drive. I've taken it to two Dodge dealers to investigate and both have told me that my drivetrain meets specs. One drove other AWD at the dealership and found the same slop in the drivetrain.
Slop - hesitation to engage, heavy thumping upon engagement thru rear end into cabin, upon shifting into Drive...thumping, and sometimes while downshifting to first a thump. Almost like there is built in "slack" in the AWD drivetrain.
Has anyone else experience this seemingly poor Mercedes drivetrain operation?
