2008 Hyundai Veracruz: A Tell-Tale Rattling

March 10, 2008

Our 2008 Hyundai Veracruz has a very noisy interior. But it might be the kinda "noisy" that only bothers the easily irritated like me. When I went for a long drive on the 405 this weekend, there was a constant rattling sound coming from the passenger side of the interior. It sounded through every road imperfection I traveled over.

At first I thought it might be the unused passenger seatbelt but when I went ahead and buckled that in, the rattling continued. Aarrrgghh!

It almost sounded like the passenger door wasn't closed properly when in fact it was. And the more the rattling continued, the angrier I got, sorta like the Tell-Tale Heart effect. Where is that noise coming from?!

Since I couldn't quiet the noise, I just turned up the volume on the radio. Could still hear the rattling but tried to ignore it. When I finally got to my destination, I ran screaming from the car. Kidding. But it sure did irritate the heck out of me.
