2016 Fit making “slapping” noises

Hey all, any idea what this noise could be? It happens when I go above 86 mph, and then happens for about 20 to 30 seconds after even below that speed
I am new to the forum, apologies if this is been posted already. I took a video, but can’t figure out how to attach it.

I didn’t know the Fit would go that fast. I’ve never had mine up that fast so I have no idea what to tell you.

This happened to me last week - a "flapping" sound at certain speeds on the freeway.

Check underneath the engine and see if the plastic splash guard has come undone. Apparently the clips break easily and this is a really common problem on Fits and Civics. That splash guard is what you hear flapping. The dealer fixed mine for under $140 and it's fine now.

Where exactly is the noise coming from, can you tell? Could be something loose, the splash shield maybe. Check around make sure everything is snug.

yah, sounds like the lower shroud is missing a few pieces of its hardware.. put the car on a lift or ramps and check.
dont' stick your head under the car with just the scissors jack in the trunk!
