Has anyone else experienced a buzz -- not quite a rattle -- coming from the rear compartment, perhaps in the cargo hold? It manifests around certain rough terrain or when a loud motorcycle is idling/going by. I hate to take this to the dealer and be 'that guy' .. would like to diagnose myself. Not serious, just an annoyance.

I had a buzzing vibration on certain rough road surfaces. It was the sliding roof mechanism/motor in the rear ceiling. Next time you hear it open the shade and see if that eliminates it. If yes, your dealer can fix it.

Now that you mention it it does seem like the noise is coming from a higher location. I'll check out the shade (though I usually drive with the shade open anyhow). What did you all say when you went to the dealer? I don't want them to tear apart my car...

And I'll try the rear seatbelts...

I was able to isolate the noise by hitting the electric motor area with my fist, thus duplicating the sound. It only occured when the sunshade was closed and when I opened the shade, while driving, the sound stopped. I too was concerned about them tearing the roof liner up but they did with no apparant resultand damage cosmetically or mechanically.
