    I had a similar problem a month ago and it turned out to be a cat. converter. Before it got bad, i had it at the dealer twice before they recognized the problem. If that's it; it's under warranty till 80000 miles. Hope you get it figured out!

    When you say you went to get it fixed twice what was done? Could be a deflector in the muffler broken, convertor internals rattling or a heat shield. You need to get under it with it running and listen for it under the same conditions. This may be better done at a shop on a lift, have a temperature check done on the convertor to see if it's failing if no other problems show up.

    Sounds like the same prob I had, Just had it fixed the other day, I have a aftermarket catback I'm not sure if you have one or not. But the prob was one of the exhaust bolts/clamp was loose. it was the clamp that connect at the cat, (If that doesn't do it, If you have access to a lift just bang around on the exhaust with you hand, that's a pretty sure way to find it. That's how we found mine.
