Rattle / rubber rubbing sound from the dash area
#11
I often get squeaky noises when I sit in the front seats, but I don't think they come from the car Rolleyes

Maybe it's been in an accident, hit from the side and that has moved the steel dash mount & crashbar.

Mine has zero gaps anywhere, perfectly fitting dash, centre console and A pillars. If yours has gaps bigger at one side than the other and a bent centre console, it has to have been damaged in a crash.

They're actually pretty well screwed together for a modern mid range vehicle.

A little update: gap between the phone cubby and center console has been sorted out. I guess my car was assembled on friday afternoon - top plastic trim hasn't been seated properly out of the factory. Assembly worker most likely missed the metal bracket on which the top plastic trim connects with pins. He/she probably saw that but only pushed it down some more and actually bent the metal bracket. Anyhow, guys sorted it out at the shop. Regarding rubbing sound: They removed the top glovebox and fixed / insulated plastic air "pipe" which was pretty loose and ocasionally produced buzzing sound in right side top dash air vent (Contact between air pipe and vent). Sadly original rubbing rattle still remains.
