I have the exact same issue and for me the culprit is the cubby itself. The upper right hand corner I believe rattles back and forth and I have gotten it to stop just by pressing on it. I should be able to just stick a piece of paper in there and it should go away.

I have this problem too. My passenger door is not a fan of Pitbull or LMFAO.

Trying to get this issue going again. I have buzz in my doors even with low volume music and even during commercials. Anytime there is somebody talking with low or deep voice. Sounds like resonance in the plastic panel and/or storage area.

I have 6 speaker system in my car, and you cannot turn bass up past 3 bars from center. It gets muddy (actually it's muddy at center bar) and boomy and rattles.

Rarely listen to the system past 8 volume. I have the rattle in the right door as well, even at lower volume.

The rear speakers are worthless, so have fader to front only, and system optimized for driver. Optimized for all passengers just increases the boomy, muddy bass, and introduces some phase issues that add reverberation to the mix.

Pretty much a worthless 6 speaker system. At least the front has tweeter separates.

Shake, rattle, and roll.

I have the same rattle in my front driver-side door. Gonna take it in to the dealer soon, glad you guys were able to get it fixed easily.

Does anyone have problems with rattles that come from trim pieces that are glued? Sometimes my center console with the volume knob gets rattly and I have to press on it for the glue popping sounds to go away (feels very cheap). Are there any actual solutions for the cheap glue rattles or is it just something we have to live with?

I took mine in for rattles and they fixed it. Then I got my headliner replaced and the other doors started rattling...

Rattles in all of my doors with the sony 10-speaker. I took it in twice and got two new speakers, but it doesn't fix the problem. Just grab hold of the door handle and press in or pull out and it stops, but whatever. I give up on this for now, but I'm almost certain its because the door panels are made of separate plastic pieces that are snapped together and small gaps in the pieces can cause rattling. The best fix I had so far was to pull the plastic handle piece out and stuff something in there to keep pressure on the door.
