3.7 6spd strange rattle on accelerating

Pretty stumped on this...
2014 v6 6spd
Only 1, 567miles almost since day one
I have noticed a slight "ping", "rattle" hell idk.
But only on accelerating hear it in 1st..2nd..an sometimes 3rd.
Tried different driving patterns.. no change.
An cant hear it at when sitting. Even trying when raising rpms.
Any suggestions ?
Sorry if in wrong place just downloaded the app an still figuring it out.

Sounds like suspension, but there's too many parts that could cause it to pinpoint it. Struts maybe?

Ive thought of that an everything seems fine.
I would describe it as a metallic rattle. An it doesnt increase with throttle. It is a steady rattle regardless of speed.
Almost sounds like a loose exhaust clamp or engine pulley.
I figured I would check around an see if anyone has had similar issues.
I know these cars have a lot of odd sounds thats been mentioned.

Is there anything in your cup holder? I know when I have spare change or my phone in there it rattles. At first I thought something was wrong until I discovered it was just a few things in the cup holder.

My 2014 Mustang is at the dealership for the same reason.From what I understand a lot of the 14's have the same issue.it's mainly from a loose lifter and should be taken care of asap before it becomes a more serious problem.

r u describing the slight shaking when decelerating at high speeds on low gears? I think it's the aluminum driveshaft?

I have experienced the driveshaft clunk no vibration though.
The dealer said today he wasnt sure an wants me to bring it back for his tech to check it again.
He sure was eager to list of issues on the 5.0 though.

Dual mass fly wheel...its not the drive shaft that causes the vibration and nor is it aluminum. Its a 2 peice as well.

While in gear and decel in gear at about 2k-3k there is a vibration that is cause by the dual mass flywheel. Personally i hate it and dont care for the DMFW but its in there and so I have to deal with it.
LOL for some reason the 5.0 keeps getting minor issues that the dealers have been more than willing to share. Not sure why they would do that. Hurts sales IMO. Where is the noise coming from you think? passenger side front? Rear? Engine bay? Trunk?

It seems more on drivers side.. I tried driving an alternating windows to see if I could tell an seems more on driver.
But I can still hear it when window is up, not as bad though.
