Smile 2011 Ford Escape Limited 4x4

Good Morning All -

I am a brand new member and appreciate being part of this group. Thank you!

Ford Man for over 5 decades. Total loyalty to the product for decades.

I'm hoping someone can help me identify an annoying issue with my 2011 Ford Escape LTD, 4x4. I am getting a rapping sound under the floorboard that sounds like a loose tailpipe or another exhaust issue. Several trips to the local garage with the car on the lift shows nothing loose. They've checked it and rechecked. N nonetheless, when I am driving down a bumpy uneven surface the rapping or rattling makes me crazy. The noise will only appear when the car is moving and the road surface is rough. The vehicle has only 77K on it and in really nice shape.

Any ideas on what the rattle/rapping sound could be? It's make me crazy.

Thanks so much!

It could be the catalyst honeycomb inside the converter breaking apart and making the noise, with it being internal that's why they can't find it.
