rattles! LOL I am removing all the plastic panels one at a time putting self adhisive foam weather strip behind these to stop all the rattles, squeeks etc. it drives me nuts! I think I got the passenger side door re-aligned to stp it from sticking.

i had a rattle that sounded like it was coming from the back end. figured out it was the jack handle hitting the battery tray.

the dealer fixed a rattle behind speesometer/steering column under warranty on my 2010. it ended up being a harness not anchored. they secured harness and installed foam padding. no more rattles. use your warranty.

Mine was more of a loud clang not a rattle when I hit bumps..... it was a broken leaf hitting the frame.

My glove box door will rattle around 1300 rpm or so. I can put my finger on the door and the rattle will stop. It doesn't bug me as it doesn't do it that often.
