Default Creaks, Rattles and Other Noises?

Have any of you experienced creaks, rattles or any other odd noises associated with fit and finish? I have a plastic shifting on plastic creaking noise coming from my door right at my left shoulder when sitting in the drivers seat. I am able to recreate the same noise when I push outward on the door. It's only an individual creak or two. It happens most often when I'm speeding up or slowing down. There's also a wire gremilin in my steering column. Whenever I go over choppy pavement, I get a rattle in there too.

On a side note, the Crosstour (not the Accord) was dinged for this very issue in the latest Consumer Reports release.

Thanks in advance!

Jay

We have the same creek at the door in ours. It doesn't really hurt anything, so I have yet to drop it off for the repair. My dealer is nice enough to explain to me what was repaired though, such as when we had an issue with a sticking door handle. Turns out it just needs a simple 5 minute adjustment and it was cured.

Well, I finally remedied that creaking... there are two rubber contact grommets on the inside of the door. Can you believe, after all this time (yes, I am an immense procrastinator), it was the upper adjustable rubber grommet. It was just barely contacting that little circular sticker, so every time there was the slightest bit of shimmy in the car's frame (fractions of mm's) the two contact points would separate causing the little creaking/ticking noise.

It had been driving me nuts since I bought the darn car; finally reserved a morning to take the door apart and see what the heck it was. In the long run, it was a 25 second fix. Whoo-hoo!

I did feel a tad bit foolish though... I should have tried this the day I drove it off the lot.

Yeah, I did the same adjustment on my daughter's Civic hood. It's funny what a quarter turn will do!

Glad it was an easy fix for you.

I have two... one that I am relatively sure I can fix and another I can't figure out. The first is the glove box rubbing on the area around the glove box when it is closed. I am planning on applying some adhesive felt to see if that alleviates the issue.

The second is really bugging me because I have no idea what might be causing it. It sounds as though it is coming from outside the cabin on the right middle to right front of the car. It seems to only rattle when I hit slight bumps which unfortunately is a lot. It sounds like something is not attached or completely tightened down.

I love how quiet the car is other than that. In fact, it's the main reason I notice the other noises in the first place. In that sense I guess it is sort of a double edged sword.

My car is very noisy when my wife is in it. When it's just my dog and myself in the CT, it's very peaceful.

I have two noises that have returned on my 1year old 2012 CT now that the weather is cold.

1) a creak or rattle from the pocket under the cd changer. This seems to be a common problem on the Accord as my 2008 had a similar issue.

2) a creak or tick sound from the steering column when the wheel is turned at slow speeds. My guess is a cord real issue, but who knows. I have an after market remote start, which I am hoping the dealer doesn't blame the problem on.

It took my dealer 5 tries and year to diagnose and repair a clunk in the front end don't really want to take the car back right now.

The only irratating noise from my CT is a cringing scratching noise when I open and shut the front DS window. I had it checked out at the dealer when I took it in for service to no avail. The lease is just about up and I'm going to test drive a '13 this weekend. If I take it, that'll solve the problem!

But if you want a real annoyance, where the heck is the power tailgate. Seriously, a 35K car and only one way to open the tailgate!?! I don't get it.

Thats not an annoyance since honda never promised it. An annoyance would be if didn't work or made some horrific sound when opening.

I have a noise when turning the steering wheel at low speeds. Almost as if something was rubbing very slightly.

Hi dtexan - I have a noise too. When I turn from a stop and it's less than 5 mph, I hear what sounds like a old bed creaking noise. Did you find out what it was?

Ok thanks for your reply. I wasn't sure if it was something I should be concerned about as I hadn't felt a difference in the performance or driving.
