    Default Car Sounds Rattly ?

    Dunno if its just me but when passing a fence / wall and you get an echo from the engine, it sounds rather tinny ? Could it be the exhaust, something rattling underneath or need a service ? Any ideas ?

    exhaust heat shield is the prime candidate. speed bumps can generally upset these and then they can rattle against the exhaust

    Probably nothing to worry about, as you say might just be the echo, that is un-nerving you.
