    I've got a month-old 2020 Prius Prime LE with 800 miles on it now. Love the car, but it's developed a plasticky, hollow-sounding rattle when going over bumpy roads at low speeds (<20 mph). It is especially present if the bump causes the car to roll a bit.

    Like I said, it's a plastic sound, almost like a coin stuck in a water bottle. It will increase in frequency for a couple seconds (like a coin coming to rest on a tabletop) then go away. Seems to be coming from under the car but honestly I'm not sure.

    Many thanks for any advice and/or similar stories!

    congrats and welcome!

    your car is under warranty, take it back to the dealer for free analysis (and hopefully repair)

    all the best!(y)

    License plate frame? Is anything in your center console? Glove box? (I had a weird rattle and turned out to be my spare sunglasses I forgot I had stashed in my center console).
