Default Car in for 30K service at Rector. And my LOANER car, yes LOANER car is

a 2001 A6 2.7T. Hmmm. Low end torque. Now I see what all these displacment guys are talking about. 1k rpm? Wanna move? No problem! My car is in for a bunch of issues, including dealer damage to the interior which they are repairing. One of the issues I have is rattling. Sure enough though, the brand new A6 rattles from the passenger side. Can I take my loaner in for warranty service?

Default You've got to isolate it with a passenger.

It could be the seat? It could be the window in the frame? Try having someone push about 10 lbs pressure on the window while driving. Does it stop? Does it stop with someone in the passenger seat not touching the window. If neither works, perhaps its the dreaded B pillar rattle, which requires the dealer to adjust it.
