Little over 6,000 miles and I have a few rattles that come and go, some are more frequent depending on the road conditions. The most annoying one is in my driver side door panel, and occasional glove box rattle with nothing in it. Also the dash on the right clicks/creaks going over certain bumps. I don’t expect Mercedes like quality, but was hoping for a more solid sounding and feeling truck compared to my 13’ Tacoma. Overall I like the truck, those are my only complaints. Do you have any rattles that you notice?

I have one tiny one. It’s the thin plastic piece inside the seatbelt height adjuster right next to my left ear as I drive. If I touch it with my finger it goes away. I keep meaning to put a small piece of electrical tape on there but don’t think about it until I’m going down the road. I’ll get to it eventually.

Ive got a few creaks that have mostly appeared as the temperature dropped and initially drove me nuts, but I'm learning to get over them. Passenger door handle and centre console.

I think that's the nature of new cars tbh... I have a 2022 Mazda 3 with its own creaks. I've heard accounts of new higher end cars doing the same.

It's a truck made with many plastic pieces (often not aligned properly)...but it's also the "quietest" cabin for a truck in this segment. So any little noise is going to be pronounced. Its good...and bad :ROFLMAO:

As much as the pricing for this truck (and others) has gone up to "luxury" pricing, the truck is still built like...well a truck. Do not expect it to be perfect and noise free. It WILL have a few creaks, squeaks, and rattles from time to time. Some can be found and rectified easily, others not so much. Weather (heat and cold) will expand and contract parts over time, and going over bumps will vibrate parts to shift as well.

Since it appears you have a 2nd gen model, I know there were a few threads regarding members shimming up their gloveboxes with make shift devices to keep the lid from rattling. You may want to search for that? ;)

Yes, it’s very quiet, I’ve done a few things since, like placing some sound deanding in the door panels, placing some felt tape around the glove box catches, and it’s helped some. Overall it’s an improvement. I can live with it. I have a 3rd gen. The pic in my sig is a 08 Pathfinder, I loved that car. It’s what made me go back to Nissan.
