Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 LS with 246,000 miles.  for the past 50,000 miles or so I have an intermittent rattle.  Sound like a tail pipe rattle.  Never happens when I take it into the dealer.  Sounds as though it is coming from the back of the car.  Suggestions?

I had experienced a rattle also, but it was the passenger seat belt hitting the plastic between the windows. It drove me crazy till I noticed it one day and saw the metal part hitting and realized that was the problem. Hope this helps you out.
