I have just under 8000 miles and no rattles yet.

Hey gang,

Just a reminder that the best first step is to have your dealers take a look so they can diagnose. I'm always happy to step in and see how I can help, too. Send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; we'll get to work!

There is an AC line which runs directly under the coolant reservoir..Some members suggested folding a sponge and wedging it under the coolant reservoir on top of the AC line - What I did was get a section of pipe insulation and wrapped it around the AC line beneath the coolant reservoir and I have not heard a rattle from that area since.

Try it with the sponge and see if it works!
Thanks for the awesome suggestion, Some Guy From NY!

Have a great day!
