Would you care to show me a pic of where exactly you stuck the business card? Thanks brother
My 2017 hatch sport is making the same rattle on the A pillar. Can we get more pictures and information on how to invisibly fix the issue?

I posted a picture a few posts earlier. It has been there for a month and the noise hasn't come back! Of course i trimmed the card so it is invisible now.

I took mine to the dealer on Monday for the dash rattle. Made sure to take it in morning or when weather was mild since it tended to do it in those conditions. They removed A pillar and put some type of felt in there. Problem solved!

business card is enough but there is more space if you want to put something thicker. you can see the void from the side when the door is open.

The pillar problem was completely fixed, but now i have another rattle when i drive on rough surfaces, from the center of the dash. I will find a solution for that too!

Haha, we had the same story... I put the second half of the business card on the passenger side A pillar and it seems to be ok now. I am not100% sure it is really fixed because I am away for business trips this month and i didn't have the chance to drive much after I did it. Also the temperature is very high now so most rattles are not showing up.

I've had rattling from both front door panels and the only fix I've had luck with so far is to add 1/4" foam weather stripping on the inside edges of the panels. I still get some rattle when the music is up really loud but it's certainly a lot better than it was.

Is it just me, or does the "cheapo" LX version have virtually no issues at all, while the more expensive models, that are supposed to be soooo much better, have several?

All I'm gonna say is HAHA to all you people that put down the LX. :)
