Rattle's

Anyone had issues with rattles? I noticed a rattle coming from under the car when I hit road cracks @ 800 miles on new 2012 car. Sounds like metal to metal to me. I've taken it to the dealer twice and they say they can't hear it. I think it's more like "Don't wanna hear it" Any idea's or what I should do next if dealer can't find it?

I haven't noticed any rattling so far after two years of ownership. My advice would be to have someone other than the dealership you purchased from check it out.

Ya, this sounds like a metal line that goes through the frame or something.
Pisses me off they burned 1/4 tank of my gas and never found anything driving it around.

Saw a huge thread on the "other" forum with the same thing. Turned out to be a pebble caught in the A-arm, and a few people had the same problem. Not sure about linking to there from here, so I'll PM you the ones I read if I can find them again.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I listened to the video of the noise, my noise sounds just like that. Thanks!

On my '10 SS coupe a nut came off the trunk spoiler and would rattle around from time to time. Dealer said they couldn't find it to get it out.

That sucks!

I just had my spoiler off yesterday to re-do my stripes and all nuts were accounted for.

i noticed a rattling sound on my new ZL1 the second day I drove it. I sounded like something rubbing against sheet metal. Only occurred at certain speeds. Turned out to be part of the wire harness that travels over the passenger side wheel well in the engine compartment right next to shock tower. There is a strap for the wire but it just won't plug into the hole that should accept it. What I suspect I was hearing was at certain speeds, air coming into the engine bay was causing the wire harness to move and thus rub agains the sheet metal. A piece of foam solved the problem.

Good luck.

From a dealer stand point, if we can't hear it we always have the customer duplicate the noise for the tech.. Sometimes easier to make sure the noise is actually heard. Take the technician at the dealer for a ride.

I did that and I could hear it plain as day and head tech said he still couldn't hear it. My dad is almost deaf and can hear it. Sounds like an old truck when going over rough road. It's embarrassing.
