Roll the window down and listen to her sing. You won't notice any rattles.

I don't understand why people buy these cars and expect them to ride like a cadillac. Pull all your interior and lay down some dynomat if it bothers you that bad. I've had mine for 3yrs and have yet to hear any rattles........or I just don't pay attention to them.

I had a cricket in my Mustang once.. At first I was like what the hell is that?! After a day it went away, so I'm guessing Jimminy Cricket died.

I had a rattle shortly after I bought the car. I took it back to the dealer and they fixed it. It has been fine to this day 2 1/2 years

Serious as a heart attack, I've got a garage full. They got a bad reputation when AMF owned the company they've yet to live down. There the best built MC money can buy now.

Mine has a rattle coming from the gauge cluster area. And from the 12v plug door between the ac vents. I've just learned to live with it.

Mine has a rattle from the rear view mirror, the right side dash, left side door panel, a shimmy/shake from the rear, intake whoosh, key jangles, cup holder kind creaks...

If I didn't know better I'd think she was falling apart... But nope. She still a sexy beast.

Hahaha. Very good point. Or even aftermarket rims/tires with a smaller profile and harder ride.

14 Rattles too

Funny this is my first post since this doesn't bother me that much..its just the first thread i seen and thought how funny...just got a 2014 V6 and theres a bit of a rattle in the DS dash must be a signature move by Ford or someone needs to be replaced on the assembly line.

I had one right by the windshield infront of the passenger seat....one solid smack made it go away. That's one way to fix it
