Lately I have had a rattling sound coming from the trunk area or either side of the back package tray area. It sounds like golf balls bouncing in a tin can when the car goes over even small bumps and road humps at low speeds - like in a rough parking lot. The sounds seems to be coming from both sides high up above the rear seat ? I had my mechanic look it over... shocks, mounts, everything under the car and in the trunk. I took everything out of the car and trunk - including the spare tire and its equipment, carpet and everyhting !
It is very annoying and the dealer wants to charge hundreds of dollars to put "body ears" on the car but they say they can find it ?? I was thinking lose shocks or something but they say everything like that is good.
Anyone had this happen ? What should I check ? I'm about to climb in the trunk and have my wife drive the car around to see if I can hear it. Anyone ever do that ?
