Our car had a very loud rattle/rumble for months. It became the characteristic sound that communicated “Matt and Ashley are out and about.” We had grown accustomed to listening to the rumble and grumbling to ourselves about it.
Last weekend while I was driving 85 mph down the highway looking out the rear-view window, I noticed something flat and metal fly out from under our car. I slowed down to see if I could detect something wrong with our car…the car kept driving, same as always, no smoke or sounds of impending danger.
Our car no longer has a rumble. I find it very ironic that this took place while I was driving and not Matt, based on our driving stats. Of all the times the little metal thing could have flown off the car, it was while I was driving.
