Question about 2008 Pontiac G5
A bad tire will cause that sensation at lower speeds. Also a bent rim. Do you feel it in the steering wheel?

SOURCE: exhaust pinging
it is the exhaust actually cooling down, this is fairly normal especially in brand new vehicles or vehicles with new exhaust. the metal used in the exhaust expands with heat you shut the car off and the heat goes away so metal contracts. nice car by the way, my neighbor around the corner just bought a black one. good luck

Check for hidden access covers for mounting hardware if not the pannel is secured either lock-pins released by a plastic weidge or needs to be lifted upward of weidge hooks mounted on the pannel itself. A cheep service manual like haynes at the local autoparts store should have this info in it.

To be completely honest, no one can give you that answer accurately.
It is recommended every 2-3 years, but the requirement can be different depending on your annual mileage and real-world uses.
Using cheap gasoline means saving a few cents on a fill-up, but will subject your engine (and it's filters) to more debris and slow damage...
If you allow your tank to go to empty before re-filling, you're pushing debris through the lines (everyone has some in their tank, most have more than they would imagine)...this clogs the filters much faster.
Your local station's storage tanks come into play as well...An older station could have a great deal of sediment in their underground tanks, and when they get low, and you buy on those days, you get your share of rust and sludge (and you're paying a premium for it...Fun stuff, huh?).
Here's my recommendation, and the "tricks" that I use to get the recommended schedules from my engine parts;
1: Only buy a quality name-brand fuel (Shell makes a great gas in all grades, and have an excellent quality standard for both the storage/distribution stations as well as the tanker trucks ( another weak link in the delivery chain ), All of which play another important role in getting clean fuel to your tank.
* An extra dime on a fill-up is nothing compared to having a $40 fuel filter replaced every year...and the eventual more serious repairs (injectors, rings, valves, etc.)
2: Never buy from an old station unless you know for a fact that they have replaced their storage tanks within the last 5 years.
3: Fill-up before a rain storm, never the day after (or the next day after that at a slower station).
4: When you see a fuel delivery truck in the lot, pass to the next station.
> This means 2 things; The tanks are low, and the new fuel isn't worth buying for an hour.
No system is perfect, and every storage tank has some sediment on the bottom...This is rarely an issue, except when the new delivery stirs that sediment while pumping the new fuel in...You don't want to be buying that soup for your engine, especially at today's prices.
5: Never let the tank go to E and once a month throw in a bottle of fuel system cleaner.
(Personal note: I prefer Mystery Oil...A bottle costs the same as a bottle of STP, but you only use 2 ounces of Marvel at a time so the bottle lasts for 4 months, while STP and the others are a one-shot deal.)

SOURCE: how to change a front
If you can't see or reach this burnt out light from under the open hood, and there are no screws through the lens to take out. You will have to get on your back under front of car and reach up and turn out(about 1/2 turn) the bulb socket from the light assembly. After you replace the defective bulb it goes back in the same way it came out. Good luck, best regards.
