Default Just bought a 00' honda accord, HELP!?

Ok, obviously this is a 13 year old car, mechanical inspected, 1 owner, very nice, 82,458 miles on it, new tires etc. Im a girl so i know not much about cars but i bought a 2000 honda accord and it runs and drives excellent UNTIL i hit a bump in the road! Im not sure if its normal since its an older car or if the car has a problem! I need help and the best answer!!

When i hit a bump thats the only time it sounds a little rough, its only the time i hit the bump it sounds like something in the trunk..

Not a bad, loud or crazy noise just simple..


Say you have a box in your trunk and you hit a bump, your gonna hear a thump from where the box bounced up in the trunk.

Thats simply all its not loud at all like i said. So should i be worried or do you think its just because its an older car??

Thankss and best answer gets max points

maybe the spare tire(or floor jack) in the trunk isnt properly secured, causing it to bounce when you hit a bump

In addition to the other things mentioned the exhaust pipe may have a broken hanger and be hitting

something when you hit a bump.
