#7 of 138 Rear Hatch Rattle
Mar 26, 2007 (5:47 pm)
Hello all. I have an '06 Vue that I've owned for about 9 months. I have noticed a rattle coming from my rear hatch when driving. I seems to be coming from inside of the hatch panel. To me, it sounds like it's metal against metal. It's been getting worse. I've scheduled an appointment with the dealer. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem?

I've had the same rattle on my '04 and it was annoying. They will find the retainer clip on the inside gate panel to be bad. You can tap on the panel while the gate is open and it will stop till you pull on the inside notch out to close the gate. I don't think they have enough clips on such a large panel. Good Luck

My 2004 ,6cyl VUE now has 50K and has had the persistent rattle since 35K. No one else has mentioned that their dealer has tried to replace the control arm bushings. I now have had these right side bushings changed 3 different times and each time they only last for two to three thousand miles each time. My dealer has no idea what to do from here. This noise is louder as the weather stays below 60 degrees. Has anyone experienced this same frustration?

Look at your brake caliper. They become loose on the pins. They have to change pins, put a special grease then you go!

I don't think your problem is rare. I have a 2006 V6 and I've taken it back to the dealer three times in the 19 months I've owned it to figure out what I call a "bobbling" noise in the front. They've replaced rotors, bushings, etc. It's fine for about 24 hours, then it's back. It becomes noticeable when you're just rolling, going over a bumpy road in a parking lot, street, at very low speed even.
Now I've become hyper-sensitive to the road noise under the car,too, especially on the highway. I have to turn the radio up really loud to counteract the noise. The tires are still new and the tire place said upgrading from the factory installed Bridgestones wouldn't improve the noisiness of the car. Any magic solutions to all my woes? I'm really not a whiner! I loved this car when I bought it. Thanks!

Umm... come drive my Geo Tracker Convertible for a week and when you get back into your VUE you will fall in love with it all over again. Road noise.. ha. (just kidding of course)

I recently had the cradle replaced on my 2004 vue, and now seem to have acquired a clattering noise from the front end. It is worse when starting off while turning or going over
bumpy roads... Any ideas??
