Brand new Taco with rattling behind dash

Hey guys, anyone have/had issues with a rattling sound coming from behind the dash the head unit? It only occurs going down a rougher concrete road? (30 mph public street). I've got an appt already set up at the dealer.

I had a rattle in the dashboard of both of my Jeeps.

Then I found out its a factory installed option in every one of them.

It turned out to be a loose piece of plastic that acts as a funnel behind the vents. They insulated it and reinstalled. No more rattle! The dealer gave me a loaner Prius. I felt liked was driving a space ship. I took are of all my errands and across town and only spent $5 in gas.... Not bad!
