Re: Anyone have this sound?

have exact same symptoms - new 2015 Altitude, I hear random jiggling noise I thought maybe it was the license plate frame (no plate yet) catching cross wind or something but from my ear seems to be in direction of rear tire well on passenger side.

You guys don't have trailer hitches bouncing around in the receiver, do you? Mine thumps when I go over speed bumps, louder and quieter depending on speed.

I tried that today...nothing!

My point being, take everything out of the back area and run it a day and see if you still hear it. Good luck.
I had a rattle sound in one of my other cars that i swore was the sunroof. I finally held the sunroof screen and it stopped..

Re: Anyone have this sound?

Is this just an Altitude problem?? We need for someone to get to the bottom of this. I'm trying to bring back to the dealer but it's just so hard, especially when they don't give out lenders.

Nope, See Judal98's post:

Yes, I have the same noise (And under the exact same circumstances)… 14 Limited 4x4... It is getting to the point where I feel I should have it looked at (thought I could live with it but probably not a good idea).

Re: Anyone have this sound?

Guys I just peaked under my car and both my rear shocks are leaking fluid big time. It must be the culprit like we expected.

Re: Anyone have this sound?

Besides shocks being an issue on a lot of vehicles. My 14 Altitude had a bad rattle from the cargo area. The rear license plate is only fastened with 2 screws so it flaps around and resonates through the sheet metal of the tailgate. I put a piece of dynamite behind the plate and now it's quiet as could be.

MIKEG15. Dynamite will make a much bigger noise!!! Just once though!! Sorry couldn't resist. Enjoy the long weekend all! I'll be checking my shocks as well as I have the same noise. I have to get my drivers seat squeak sorted as well. Any squeak or rattle in a vehicle drives me nutts. My 09 Acura TL SHAWD never had a squeak or rattle.

Re: Anyone have this sound?

I looked under mine yesterday and the shocks looked fine. No leaking. I need an oil change in about a thousand miles, so I'll have them take a look when I get the oil change.

It does sound/feel like it has been slowly getting worse over the last couple of months.
