Cabin Rattles!!!

You know what really bothers me, cabin rattles. I have a 2012 with about 10k on the clock. Haven't jumped it, done very light off roading few bumps here and there but the damn center console rattles like a mofo and only sometimes. When I got my 10k service a few weeks ago I had the techs look at it. They uninstalled and re-installed it and that seemed to work for a couple days. BAH!!! I know I am complaining about nothing or the fact that I could just turn the radio up a bit louder but it just kinda sucks. I have always been told that Toyota has great build quality so on and so forth. My gf drives a 2002 Tacoma Pre-Runner with 140k+ on the clock NO RATTLES!!!! I was thinking about removing the plastic piece and putting some some or dynamat on the underside of the piece. Anyone else have a fairly new truck with rattles? Suggestions?

where does it rattle? My dash rattles behind the gauges but only on certain days when the sun and moon are aligned properly (like today) Drives me crazy!! Only started happening when the dealer replaced my dash. Gotta take it back to them one of these days

Thats kinda odd! I have a ’07 and i don’t have any rattles inside that are not from stuff i have under/behind back seat.

I would pull the plastic cardboard thing out of the bottom and check the bolts. also maybe pull the cub holders out and the trim pice around the shifter and see if you see anything, or if anything is loos.

Ya, it doesnt happen all the time either. I was thinking maybe it has to do with how hot/cold the temp is in the truck? Like the pieces are expanding and contracting? That plastic piece that sits around the shifter, this part

Ya, I'll have to pull it and see whats going on. I know its not the cup holder part, pulled those and made sure there were no rattles. Might not hurt to check again though.

I see you have the baja tacoma. Could it be the trd exhaust causing it to rattle in the cabin?

sometimes when I am playin music w/ a decent amount of bass, I hear the black plastic trim around the 4 window switches (and black trim around pass door window switch) rattle at anything over "30" on the headunit. This is all stock, no upgraded anything. I am definately gonna have to address this when I am eventually sending over 100w to each door

That's what I thought also. I am not new to the drone/rattle from exhaust, Come from V8's running straight pipes so I have ruled that out.

I do notice that the door plastic pieces rattle at high volume (im OK with that) with a good amount of bass, still doesn't make the center rattle though. I have tested this with music and without, drives me NUTS! What I hate is driving down the freeway, cruise control set and I just hear a constant rattle it actually sounds more like the plastic pieces are settling then unsettling, settling then unsettling... strange.

I have a 2012 reg cab and my dash rattles. As does my left door, around the speaker. My 2005 reg cab never had any rattles. even on gravel roads. Not been impressed with this '12.

I have a 12 regular cab and it rattles as well around the dash... not all the time but....
PITA!
Truck has 15 k on it, bought her new in july ... with that being said, when i bought the truck my driveway was three miles right up the side of a mountain.... rough gravel road often used 4x4 to avoid shredding the tires....

when i left that place at the end of the summer, I now life two miles off a paved road ... lots of bumps and ruts, 4x4 all winter long.... you know driving it like a truck

I do not mind the noise, long as the rest of it holds up.... I knew that it was going to make noise going into to this ... look at all that plastic.

its a 20 thousand dollars 4x4 that will go almost anywhere, pull 3500 pounds... if the plastic rattles... fine, long as the rest of the truck drives like a truck

just my two cents

I actually agree with you. Lots of plastic so ya. I guess I am just nit picking. I Just thought not owning a domestic vehicle that I wouldn't get rattles I had a 2006 Charger SRT before my Baja, drove that thing hard until about 85k miles when I traded her in. No rattles haha. All in all I do agree with you though, if everything else holds up I really have nothign to complain about

There seems to be a trend. Myself and others are having interior rattles in there 2012's. My truck has never seen dirt and maintained meticulously. It has 6000 miles and the rattles started at 2000 miles. The middle of my dash rattles, inside of my drivers door rattles, drivers window rattles, passenger headrest rattles, climate controls area rattles. Its driving me crazy. I'm apprehensive to take it to the dealer because I know they would say they couldn't replicate the problem or cause more damage. I paid way to much money for a truck to start rattling with this little miles. I seriously thinking about cutting my loses before more serious problems happen.

I have an 88' 4runner parked in the garage with 100k on the clock and the interior makes no noise.

I've noticed my weather stripping between the doors rattles. I can hear it squish when I tug on the door while its closed and it just gets louder when I'm driving. At 1,100 miles too.

I agree. My rattles are so loud and obnoxious I am furious at Toyota for making such an inferior product! Listen to this video, it sounds like my truck is falling apart! Do you think it will be covered under warranty?

Same here, 2012 and there is a rattle in the dead center of my dash that is more pronounced on warm days. Started around 2k miles too but I thought it was something the dealer did when they installed the alarm. My passenger window has a slight rattle and the passenger rear seat belt rattles alot.

No dash rattles (knocks on wood) just the center console at the moment. Sometimes if I hit a bump or something hard enough I get jolts and rattle but that's expected.

My question is....
do any of you have rattles who use your truck for just PAVEMENT driving?
I have not driven or owned a rig yet that if it got used off road on any regular bases that didnt rattle
Chevy's
Fords
Many many toyotas first and second gen tundras was my work truck for a long time in the high desert of utah
I guess my point is that toyota sells its cars and trucks towards people who never use them like a truck is supposed to be used.... these people want the 4x4 logo and fifteen cup holders
the market has changed, we can not be mad at toyota for changing with it.... if you want a truck that dosent rattle, I would say look around for something that is twenty years old and made of metal
again, I dont mind the noise....

Same here.. 2012 with a center dash rattle, passenger seat rattle and rear seat rattle over speed bumps and such.. So annoying but I am going to at the very least have the dealer fix the rear seat because it is by far the worst...
