Tinny Rattle from prop shaft

2017 Discovery Sport HSE. We noticed a tinny rattle from the prop shaft when driving uphill 2 weeks after picking up the car. We reported this to the dealer and after 2 visits and nothing found we left it for 2 weeks with the dealer without resolution from Land Rover. We had a loaner during this time which also had the same rattle. The dealer continued to work on the loaner. We were told to call Land Rover and raise a case file. I have learned that a further 2 owners have the same issue
After 4 months without a solution they have just told us that it is a characteristic of the vehicle so is not an defect and we had to push the accelerator harder so the rattle did not happen. We feel that they have designed a car that rattles.
Has anyone else had this issue
