Hey guys every now and then when I go to start my car the starter will clunk into the flywheel. like there is a little play so the starter hits the flywheel with some speed instead of being meshed and applying torque. it only happens like once every five to ten starts. car only has 12k miles.

is this normal? or a sign something is wrong?

I would have it checked as it does sound like the bendix clutches are slipping. At the least you will have it on record that you might have a start problem.
