i know this may sound weird, but I have noticed this, and so has my wife (without bringing it to her attention first)

when I drive, my left foot rests on the floor mat in the location of the floor mat hook....in that area, i frequently feel a little movement/vibration/rattle

There is minimal to no noise heard, I just feel something under my foot.....i can also feel it if i put my hand under the floor mat.

It occures mainly over bumps and under acceleration

I looked underneth and the closest part to this area is the brake cable going from under the carpet, to the exterior under the vehicle.

I thought maybe the subframe bolt or the mount is the culprit because it did not do it today in the rain.


I know this may not make much sense, but has anyone else noticed this?

It might help for you to describe your vehicle details (year, engine, drivetrain, etc.) - maybe even put the info in your signature.

That way, folks reading might better be able to respond and help you out...

Wait...this is something you feel while driving and "mainly over bumps and during acceleration"....and you had your hand under the floormat? Sounds dangerous. :eek: ;D

I would recommend taking the vehicle into your local dealership to be diagnosed. They should be able to assist you further and have a plan for addressing the issue. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you.

Which body mount was it? I don't have this issue with my Nox, but it would be nice to know just in case..
