Been reading the forum for some time now and really enjoy all the good information.

I have a couple issues with my '02 Grand Am Gt. First, for the last few months I get a rattle coming from under the passenger side about even with the front of the passenger door. It only happens when I first start the car after it has sat long enough to cool down. Sounds like rocks in the exhaust but I'm not sure it's not motor related. Car seems to run fine.

Secondly, my brakes have a terrible vibration and noise when I apply them while going down hill. It happens sometimes on the level road but always does it on a hill that I drive daily. This is also new. The pads are virtually new and there was no uneven wear on the last pair so the rotors and calipers weren't touched.

Any advice would be appreciated. I have to hand the car over to my wife soon as it's her winter car so I want to get these issues resolved before I have to hear it from her. :bangheadThanks
