Do car rattles/squeaks drive you nuts

We can't stand car rattles. Drives us crazy.

Nope, but it annoys the heck out of my husband!

I tend to not even notice them, especially if I'm alone because then I usually have music turned up pretty loud. DH will often point them out to me but it just doesn't bug me like it does him.

I drive a Volkswagen, so it better not bother me. All they do is rattle and squeak. I would climb into your rattling car and say, "Hey, sounds just like a Volkswagen."

Now in my wife's car, yes noises bother me. Every time it rains, there is a gurgling sound somewhere. I believe it to be the drain from the sunroof, but can't do anything about it. Drives me nuts.

My old Toyota truck, the dash had a spot where it rattled against the windshield frame. I cut a small wedge of foam and cured it (there was actually a TSB on it if I took it in to the dealer.) Years went by and it was forgotten about. After those years, I had to have the windshield replaced. Immediately upon leaving the parking lot at work the dash rattled. They had removed my tiny piece of foam when they replaced the glass.

Doesn't bother DH but drives me crazy. If something is rattling, I need to search through the glove box, console, etc until I find the source and make it stop.

Yes, but they make my dh absolutely nuts. He's even taken the dashboard completely apart to fix a squeak. I just turn up the radio and try to ignore them.

Oh yes! It drives me insane. My husband couldn't care less. I will search for the source until it is fixed.

Right now my car is making some kind of buzzzzzz noise after the car is turned off. It's in the speaker right by the drivers ear. It will run for a few minutes and then turn off. It's driving me crazy because when I sit in the car at carpool it buzzes right in my ear. I have got to get this fixed soon!

Yes..not because the sounds are annoying but I live in fear that it is a sign the next thing is breaking and I am going to have to take it in. My last two vehicles have been somewhat lemons and we have had extensive issues (for example my Equinox needed a complete replacement of the transmission when it wasn't even 5 years old! Granted it was covered by GM completely but it took them almost 2 weeks to diagnose it, get approval to replace it, wait for the parts and replace) so I tend to view every squeak and rattle as the next inevitable problem.

When you drive a 25 year old car, a rattle is a reminder that you haven't make a car payment in over 22 years.

Don't ever ride in a TV live truck, even when they are brand new they sound like a marble in a coffee can.

Yes.... and my wife does not understand why rattles, vibrations, clunks, etc. bother me. My explanation is that a new or foreign noise is a good indication that something is about to wear out, break, fall out. Very logical to me!

You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?...

Our current vehicles don't have any squeaks and rattles. I know it doesn't bug my husband - he ignores any.

But when there are squeaks and rattles with our current vehicles I know there's something wrong. Does that mean they bug me? I would say no - I just get the problem fixed.
I've already caught a problem with the window track of my vehicle due to a rattle. Had it fixed, window works better and no more rattle.

Husbands car was having a squeaking problem in front passenger side. He thought it was fine. I could feel something was wrong when I drove his car so I took it in. Sure enough the front rotor was bent and the brake was messed up on that side of his car.

I have never noticed a rattle or squeak in any of my cars . I think I tune it out!

I did car-pool with a friend to college 20ish years ago and she would sometimes drive her Volkswagen Rabbit and sometimes her DHs BMW. That BMW drove her NUTS with its rattles! She was constantly pressing on the dash to get it to stop...I never noticed until she would point it out!

We have a drill-in dog fence/ guard we put infront of the boot to stop our lovely dog Oscar from attempting to leap out of the boot and onto the back seats. It rattles like CRAZY and on a 10 hour drive to Scotland- it does get to you...!

This is us too. He will say did you hear that and turn down my music and force us to wait for it to happen again.
