So I took mine to the dealer today and had it an intermittent rattle in the shifter area that was most noticeable when the car was first warming up and less noticeable as the war was warmed. If I moved the shifter a little forward or back a little it would stop. It would not rattle in N or P.

The dealer spent all day working on diagnosing the problem and ultimately found that if you press down on the passenger side exhaust at the rear it would go away. I had flowmasters installed and that is when I started to notice the rattle in the shift console.

So I was asked to go back to the shop that installed the muffler and see if they can fix whatever tweak is in the exhaust. It was axle back flowmasters and hopefully it will be an easy fix. This has been driving me crazy for some time and I am glad I now know what it is.

I figured I would share in case anyone else might want to try this. It is easily repeatable and definitely the solution on my car. Some others mentioned a transmission tag rattling on a heatshield in other posts. All of my heatshields were in good order and nothing buzzing. On the bright side, I got Chevy to tighten the entire underside of my car today looking for the rattle so it was worth the time and actually a good experience.
