    It rattles. I found a solution yesterday while on this site but now I am having an issue locating it. It mentioned a fix that was verified regarding the engine mount.

    Possibly motor mounts. Can you elaborate on the noise?

    I found it. The answer was posted with a verified response as follows: An abnormal noise or vibration on acceleration from rest or on gear shift may develop. Our technicians tell us a redesigned left side engine mount insulator is available to address this problem.
