Hi there. A noise under the vehicle is very difficult to diagnose without completing a test drive. It is very possible that you have an exhaust leak, a loose exhaust bracket or a perhaps a loose stabilizer bar bushing. In order to correctly diagnose this issue, it is best to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is making a noise inspection.
