When you guys open the drivers side door, or any door for that matter, i hear the gas tank cover rattle. anyone else experience that. its more noticeable when you open the drivers door, because you're right near it, sounds like an air vacuum sucking the door in quickly or something.

Also, you guys notice how your radiator has some play as far as moving around??? i thought it was weird, but it looks like its meant to move around a little bit, anyone know why? all the other cars we have in my family dont do that.

Thanks in advance.

Radiators are shockmounted, usually with rubber bushings, to allow for expansion and contraction cycles as the thermostat opens and closes. Some are tighter than others but you should find that they're almost always soft clamped into position rather than rigidly bolted.

Have your dealership check out the fuel cover concern, that's not a normal syndrome.

Radiator will always be like that in any car in general. As for the fuel cover, have the dealer take a look at it.
