    Are you only hearing it when you're on the track, Jimmy?

    After track it started making the noise. Sounds like vibration from dash assembly. I'll record it tonight. Everyone hears it weird thing, if u sit passenger it sounds like coming from left side. If you sit driver sounds from right. It's very strange. I'll record it tonight. Thx guys

    A lot of our roads around here are less than flat, and I'm starting to hear a constant squeak from passenger door panel or center console... can't tell until I get a passenger in the car with me to locate.

    Aren't squeaks and rattles a Dodge signature characteristic? Massive performance, minimal price tag, something has to give.

    30k car with 30k engine. Accords/Civics are 20-30k cars in total and don't rattle.

    They probably would, if you were putting 700 hp thru them. ;)

    I had a rattle the first day I drove the HC home from the dealer. It was a "buzzing" sound that came from the left of the tach. If I pushed down on the dash with two fingers the buzz would go away. It turned out that the buzz was caused by my tires being over-inflated to 51 lbs. Once I aired the tires correctly the buzz has virtually disappeared.

    I'm having this exact problem.it sounds like it's coming from under the passenger dash. It's a constant sound. From day one. None of my other challengers does this. Still trying to pin point the sound.

    If you can't find it, you have alternatives:

    No dash rattles here, but I have encountered rattles behind the rear passenger airbag panels. The right rear is more prominent than the left. No clue what is causing the rattle (i.e.: what piece is specifically moving around), but it is consistent with specific speeds, radio volume, and presumably whatever harmonic vibrations are emitted by the exhaust at the time. Not worth my time to complain to the dealer about it.
