I cant tell you if its okay I cant seem to see the vehicle. There are about 10,000 things that can rattle on a car. getting on the internet and asking what the "rattle" noise is seems silly to me. Since the man that changes your oil can actually put his eyes and ears to use on this vehicle I would see if he could help you more than just saying they all do it.

Most likely a loose heat shield for the catalytic converter. Or a loose exhaust hanger allowing the exhaust system to move around. HTH. -Jim
