first long trip with my 2013 MDX base, got slight plastic vibration noise

just made a 150 miles trip and come back to home a day ago

during the drive, after the car warms up there is a very slight plastic scratching or vibrating noise. (it's really not that obvious, only happen in slight bumpy road and with cabin quiet, it easily get covered with music or radio)

it drive me nuts but finally I think I found where it comes from, it seems come from the the dash, the top part of the speed and rpm gauge

I will post a picture as soon as I can, for now I just taped it and tomorrow will try if the noise go away.

I just got this car for a week or so, so just want to know if this covered under warranty.

? Why wouldn't it be covered? Brand new car, any defects or poor workmanship should be covered

thanks, I just want to make a single trip to fix this minor things
maybe let it run for a while and see if it's the real problem.

now it comes with picture

I think it's the place causing the noise, as when I hold the plastic with my hand tightly, it seems the noise will go away or at least happen much less.

I really cannot tell clearly since it's not happen that often, and only in bumpy road.

anyone experience the same?
