Default Help identify this sound!

Hi all,
Have seen over the past 3 weeks my average MPG has dropped as I began hearing a high pitched rattle when accelerating in lower gears.

Listen in at https://clyp.it/i1k4boua#

Trying to figure out if I should bring it to the dealership (I'm at ~40,000 mi so powertrain warranty could apply) or independent shop to investigate and resolve.

Thank you for your help!

Kevin

CVT or manual?

I hear what you're hearing, it could be any number of things. Have a dealer tech take it for a ride for starters.

So what was making that sound? An exhaust heat shield? With high mileage on my 2012 CVT, I'm on the lookout for telltale signs of anything going wrong with the transmission.
