I just bought a 2009 Matrix S with AWD (automatic) for the wife. We are getting a strange, intermittent noise/vibration coming from the drivetrain. The noise typically occurs when the vehicle goes into the highest gear at the lowest speeds. The noise is very audible and is accompanied by a vibration in the floor. The car drives/shifts just fine, all of the fluids (including AWD fluids) are brand new. 

 

Is there something typical that causes this sort of symptom? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

FIXED!!

 

After a couple of years of just "dealing with it", I stumbled upon the fix by accident. We were doing some service and I decided to have the transmission fluid and filter changed. Sure enough, the vibration went away!
