|MC1992||I do agree that things like suspension and transmission work are a bigger issue, but seriously a new car shouldn't do this and this creak is very ignoring sometimes for the past 6 months. It starts out as little creaks but as of now on bad days you can literally hear it 15 ft away. It's that loud. Makes me feel like I'm in that movie Grudge. It makes you think on what other things are being compromise considering this is part of the car's body. We have a 2010 Civic that we brought new and that car has never been to the shop once besides oil changes. This car has already been in the shop to have a speaker replaced but the door panel still rattles but less frequently, a tailgate realigned because it was way off from the factory, the a/c fixed because it wasn't blowing cold at all, the transmission updated which we never seemed to noticed that it did anything, and the center bezel trim around the radio replaced because some how the black paint was coming off. I don't think I've known anyone who brought a new car had this much stuff done in this short amount of time. I'm just disappointed and frustrated because I truly loved this car and did a lot of shopping around, test driving, and research when looking into a hatchback.|

It's like having a slight headache and then accidentally bashing your thumb with a hammer... you momentarily forget about the headache because your thumb hurts so much.
Troubled by that tiny creak? Let a dealership do major suspension and transmission work on your car, and your concerns about that little creak will pale in comparison to the new noises and vibrations your car will end up with.

Mine does this, too.
It's the sheet metal creaking and buckling. Sort of like those clickers they use to train dogs.
No amount of lube will fix this.
Letting the dealership try to fix it is almost certain to make things worse.
My advice would be to just live with it until it either goes away on its own, or goes away with the car when you trade it in.

|Touring05||I have the same creaking sound. Brought it to the dealer and they sprayed it down with grease but it still creaks to this day. Doesn't bother me as much anymore.|

So as of today I am 99.9% sure that the plate welding has gone bad on my car. I had the dealer take a look at it a month ago and they put a lot of grease on the door strap and it has not stop the creak. I am surely determined that the plate that is welded to the frame of the car where the bolt screws the door strap to is the culprit. All creaks are coming from there. I told the service adviser and he said he his willing to have the body shop to take a look at it when I have the time. Unfortunately for me I won't have time to take it in until May because of school. Hopefully it does not get any worst. This is the second time I have taken the car in to have it looked at.
cobie56; Yes I do find the seat does squeek every once a while, but it rarely happens so I'm not too concern with it as compared to this door issue.

|MC1992||Well I finally did a video of it in case anyone else was wondering. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbDvdwREkag and part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i4e26GkcDE It's very strange, on extremely humid days it goes away. It's also literally coming from where the door strap is bolted to the frame and is amplified within the pillar. As you can see they already tried to quite it down with the grease there, but that was the day I took it in which we had intense dense fog and it never produce a sound that day. Taking the car back in later this month since apparently the driver's door speaker was blown somehow and that was the cause with all the rattles. O_o|

|Superd||Mines been doing it for a year. Soaking it in wd40 or other lubes did nothing. Its not loud either but it just doesnt sound right.|

|axrec1980||Mine started creaking intermittently a few weeks ago but now it does it all the time. I haven't been to the dealer yet but I wonder what they would say. Another member of the forums had this problem and was quoted $3000 CDN to get it fixed...|
