tinkle

Getting a metallic tinkle, scraping, ping ping sort of noise out of the Prius the last two days. Starts to happen on the way home from work after getting off the pike. Starts with a spring sort of sproing sound which I can feel in the steering wheel. Then it switches to a mix of metal scraping, like the muffler was dragging mixed in with a ping ping sort of rocks bouncing around the wheel-well. Then it transitions to more pure scraping and then in a sudden SCRAPE, it sounds like something falls off and the sound stops.

Bring the car in and let them have it for a day on Wednesday.

Well, if the sound stopped, then it's fixed, no problem! I like those kinds of fixes. Cars have a way of fixing themselves; it's very uncanny when they do that!

Problem is it did it Wednesday on the way home from work. Did it again on Thursday on the way home(and for longer).

Need the 45K service next week anyway, so I've asked them to look for whatever the problem might be at the same time.
