MAZDA 3 NOISE PROBLEM

2008 Mazda 3 • 57,000 miles

I just bought the car from a dealer and when starting it. Up everything is fine. Its after I shift from first to second (clutch disengaged) I hear a faint scraping noise. I know there are a bunch of metal plates under the car so I thought possibly this could be it. I took it to the dealer and could replicate the noise. I found that the noise is most prominent after the vehicle has been sitting. For a while.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

Possible cat converter shield making noise. Have the dealer re check it for you.
