    Rattly bloody GSi

    I have had the GSI for about a month now and i'm well chuffed with it, the only thing i'm getting fed up about is the amount of rattles it has. The rear of the car sounds like it's dropping to bits. I had an SXi before it and there was hardly any rattles.

    I've adjusted the rubbers for the boot and that has solved some of the problem, now another has started i have checked for anything that is loose and can't find anything, what could it be? The parcel shelf?

    Does anyone else have a rattly Astra G???

    Rant over

    I sold my GSi after spending in excess of £7000 in 14months, due to crap interior build quality ! - its a joke to be honest, the only thing I have had of similar interior quality was an Old Rover !!

    Don't hold back LN I wish more people would speak up like that

    Mine has interior rattles as well, I just expect it of Vauxhall, goes with the unhealthy depreciation

    Oh and they seem to be worse in the hot weather

    No point in calling it something its not. To be fair its a personal pet hate, especially if you cant find the bloody things !!

    Turn the stereo up put foot down hold on, ignore the rattles, enjoy the ride.

    I adjusted the boot rubbers on mine and that stopped the tailgate rattling, but I had to do that on my mk3 too. My rear seats seem to squak but I just ignore it having too much fun.

    My GSI seats squeeked like mad and it was driving me crazy

    you sure it aint had a bump in the rear? as the fixing of this would loosen up bits if they have been off for repair

    Yeah i pretty sure it's not had a bump, it's only covered 4k miles when i got it, it all lines up fine and there's nothing a miss with the paint.

    Looks like i'm gonna have to around it with a load of packers over the weekend and tighten everything up, it's driving me up the wall.

    I really can't understand it though, the SXi has zero ratlles, i thought it would be built better being the top of the range.

    p.s. Lordnikon, how come it cost you £7000??????

    My seats rattle when a passenger is sat next to me, the plastic around the rear left window has come away and rattles like mad, and then to top it all off, I hate bloody sunny warm days - the car turns into a rattle machine as the plastic heats ups!! does anyone elses seats rattle or do you find them difficult to move forward!! the mk 4 gsi is a very nice car, just not built for the price.
