2003 Highlander 4 cylinder
Seems to only happen in the fall or early winter here in the San Francisco Bay area where I live
in the early morning when it's still cold - and it doesn't happen every morning :
When I go between 25 - 35 miles per hour only
there is a loud rattling on the right side(towards the rear).
Even if I take my foot off the gas and shift to neutral the rattling continues if the car
is still in the 25 to 35 mph range.

Screws on the overhead luggage rack were loose. After tightening, haven't had any problems!
