Sounds like the vehicle weight against the Parking Pawl in the trans.... Try setting your parking BRAKE first before putting it in PARK... "BH"

Shouldn't b a problem yet. But I would be sure to set the brake first, then shift to park. Mine did it at first too. But I have since tightened the parking brake. FYI, you need to take off the wheel, rotor to access the adjuster. I recommend having the dealer do it.

My wife has had two Acura MDX's which do the same thing. Everyone else is spot on except I put the parking brake on, shift to neutral and let the weight of the car shift from the transmission to the parking brake, then I put in park. My Ram does it too if its steep enough. Ill do this when my new Rubicon comes in. I think its just the norm these days with the tight tolerences of modern transmissions.

Your punctuation leaves a little room for error; but it sounds to me like you are still moving when you put it in park?? If so; STOP first, then put in park, then I bet your problem will go away.
