I'm getting a rattling sound, too. But my problem is in my speakers. I'd have to guess you either need new speakers, or your problem could be in the hatch door. A friend of mine had that problem. His hatch window was loose or something, and that rattled, and eventually leaked. Hope that helped.

What would cause a rattling sound under the front of your car which is a Ford Taurus wagon and cause extreme inner tire wear on the front?

without looking at/hearing/feeling anything i would first guess at bad struts. these can cause the extreme wear(as can a few other normal less expensive things like camber/toe settings) but would also be the cause of some rattling. again, rattling could be coming from many other things but im venturing to guess you have bad struts. unless the rattling happens only when turning. then you probably have bad cv joints etc. and the tire wear could simply be a bad alignment or lack there of rather. try getting an alignment and ask them to check your steering components/system . . .most places can inspect this for free with an alignment. my best advice, if you are a DIY'er, fix the cheaper things first and build your way up . . . hopefully the problem is resolved before you have to spend big bucks. good luck
