I own a 9-3 SS. It does have a buzz with high bass, and also a rattle in the door. I discovered (in my case) that the rattle is actually the window rubbing against the seal! Not sure what can be done about that! I love the car tho'. :) Mike In article <62e5dfca.0308190759.b70dc13nopsaming.google.com>, Phillip Millman <Phillip_millmannopsamo.com> wrote: > Pablo, > > Its a common problem and there is a fix.
