Picked up my 2K R/T on 12/03/00! Had 73 miles on it then, 7054 now.

Here's a list of my problems.

1) Haven't found that darn rattle in the passenger door. But it's going in for 7500 service, so they better find it...

2) That freaking scratch on my door... it wasn't there when I bought it...

Man, what a piece of junk... :D :D :D

My secret is that I can work from home, usually 2 or 3 days a week, but sometimes the entire week. If I had to go in every day, I'ld hace at least twice as many miles. :)

Hey BK, Looks like I'm not alone. My car had 6 miles on it when i picked it up on 10-28-00. And now it's going on 29,300 miles... what do you have done to your car at 30,000 mile service????

I've had mine for over a year and a half, and have 16K miles on it. Only because I had to make two trips across country with more than 1500 miles each way...

That's 6,000 of the miles in just those two trips! ARGH!

Dj, now you know why I never take my car into the city. :D

Trips to New York are what trains and busses are for... :)

I had that rattle in the passenger door...so I thought, until I found the real source.
When you open your passenger door and look at the side of the dashboard you'll see a cover that looks like the cover on the fusebox on the side of the driver's side of that dashboard. That cover was loose and made a really annoying noise for a two day old car. A good smack with the palm of my right hand snapped the cover right back where it belongs and never again made that noise. You may have a different problem but check that cover before you make anyone take your door apart!
Good luck! Let us know if that was the problem or not!

when does it rattle? I know that mine rattled with the stereo cranked up, there is 2 holes for screws to go into, I only had one in each door so I added a couple, looks like Otto was not doing his job making my car. just kidding.

:D

Have you tried to lock or unlock your door with your key? When we first got our R/T, I noticed a rattle within about 3 wks of owning it. We had always used the remote to unlock and lock the doors. It wasn't until I stuck the key in to unlock the car that I discovered the problem (key wouldn't work on the door that rattled) Took it to the dealer for an oil change and had them look at it. A portion of the tumbler for the door lock mechanism had fallen off and into the door. I just thought it was a rock or something that had gotten in the door and was making the noise. Try and see if your key works on that rattling door. Hope you find it! ;)

I'm humbled by the concern over this "major" problem, the only problem I've had in the past year... :D

The thing is, I can't get over there while I'm driving! When I've noticed it and asked "passengers", I get..

"It's here".

"No, it's coming from here".

"I think it's this"... ... ...

I noticed the dash panel, when I was "banging around" once to find it, but that's not it. I did tighten it up, but it's a different noise anyway. I think I posted a thread on the "old" forum about this...

And I looked at the speaker, one of the first, it's that kinda sound. But it rattles when going over bumps, even with the radio off, like it's ever off...

And I did JUST try the lock idea, since I don't think I've ever used the key either. Nice idea, but no help...

Oh well, don't sweat it. The dealer will get his shot soon. If they can't find it, I may be looking for door blueprints... :D :D :D
