If it sounds like it could be an exhaust noise check the flex connection that connects the exhaust manifold on the engine to the exhaust system. I've had 2 '06s and they have both failed. It's not a cheap part, surprise, surprise, but you'll need a new one. Don't bother with a used one. The labor is about 1.5 hours at a muffler shop.
