Keep pressing the dealer about the noise. Eventually it will get so bad, it can be be reproduced at will.So my 2013 Cruze is about 3 months old now, 8000 miles. I have developed at least 2 noises/rattles in the two front doors. They are intermittent, but when they occur, they are annoying as heck.
I believe both of them have to do with the door panel not being 100% flush it the door, there's a bout a gap of about 2 pieces of paper, and when I press it towards the door and release I can hear the sound that I hear (I guess it doesn't really qualify as a rattle, just a noise). It's more apparent on the driver door than the passenger door.
When I'm on the freeway I can usually stop the noise by applying pressure against the door. It's kind of hard to do this to the passenger door though.lol
Problem is it's so intermittent, that when I brought it to my local dealership Chase Chevrolet, they said they couldn't find any noise/rattle.
Any tips on how to deal with this issue or how to get the dealership to deal with this issue. They said they had 3 people including their quality control expert ride in the car and heard nothing. I know the issue exists, it's too annoying to not exist, especially in a brand new car that is supposed to be an ambassador to the owners of Corolla and Civic.
I know that if I let friends who own Corolla and Civic ride in my Cruze they'll immediately make a big issue out of the noise.
Should I try another dealership? I have my Cadillac dealership that I deal with for my Pontiac Grand Am and the Cadillac CTS that I used to have. I don't want to keep coming back to the dealership only to have them keep telling me there's nothing wrong.
I'm pretty sure I could get the noise to stop by stuffing a piece of tissue between the door panel, but I shouldn't have to do that on a brand new car.
As far as the Corolla and Civic owners.
For the Civic owner - Ask them about the 2012 Civic. The car was so bad that Honda had to do a refresh for the interior and exterior for 2013.
For the Corolla owner - Just give him a bunch on Tupperware and Rubbermaid products. Since they designed the interior of the ancient Corrolla
