I'm thinking this is a diesel thing, but not totally sure. I thought I've heard it coming from some other diesels before. No foot on the accelerator, just letting it coast, I can occasionally hear a faint clicking when I am close to a guardrail, or cars, or anything else the sound can bounce off of. Just wondering what this might be. It happens much more than I notice it I'm sure, but I've only noticed it a handful of times since I got the car.

I heard this on my car at about 300-400 miles it was a dam screw in my brand new car front passenger tire. I wasn't happy. I'm not saying this is your case but this was my case for this sound.

I have had both a screw and a stone caught in the tread make a sound like that.

Yet another vote for something stuck in a tire - either benign, such as a stone in the tread, or nasty, such as a nail or screw which might hole the tire.

I'd go over each corner with my hands, being able to lift it would be wonderful, but a torch, some patience, your bare hands, and not being afraid of getting yourself dirty could ease your mind!

Mine has done this since new. I think it is just something in the way the transmission downshifts.

I'm thinking this. I think it only happens after the transmission does downshift (I notice it mostly going downhill). I'll have to check for a rock though. Thanks guys!

Blackhawks are a tribe of Indigenous Indians here in North America .

The Chicago Blackhawks are a professional Hockey Team and are playing in a series against the Nashville Predators to advance to the next round of these play offs and then on to the final round for the Stanley Cup ..
Blackhawk Helicopter are a twin turbine overhead propelored flying war machine with a crew of 4 or 6 and plenty of fire power the ( phalanx ) to go around . normally found with the aircavalry today although they can be utilized by Special Operations Forces ..

And the Canadiens are a professional hockey team that matters.

Mine has done this as well since new; always when coasting and only for a short period at certain speeds. I can faintly hear it with the windows rolled up as well, and usually only when going downhill. I'm not sure what it is, but it doesn't worry me. My completely unproven hypothesis was something with the fuel system, perhaps injectors or HPFP.
