Survey - sunroof rattle

Hi All,

I am very close to ordering 10g 4d 1.6 diesel and I am wondering how many of you are experiencing (or experienced) rattle, etc. from your sunroofs?

As probably all of us I am not a fan of rattles of any sort and I am trying to asses how big of the problem is and if I should steer away from spec with sunroof becasue of that.

Many thanks for your vote

Please state body type and registration year.

a) my sunroof is rattling or making other unwanted noises
b) my sunroof was rattling but it has been successfully fixed and remains so for longer then 2 months
c) my sunroof has never rattled

Thanks

Thank you. I hope we will get mostly "C" so I can order the highest spec.

Alternatively I will go one lower and get dealership to do leather upholstery and heated seats in it, but I would prefer factory fitted and added extras that come with highest spec.

4D 10G uses a conventional slide and tilt glass sunroof and not the opening glass roof that a 5D 10G has, so quite different in design.

Thank for that info.

1.5T Prestige CVT 5d, May 2018

B. (Hoping beyond 2 months) It's now a month after the third attempt to resolve. After the previous two attempts it was solved for around a week each time.

I have read about your problems in the other thread. I hope they are gone for good now.

Just to sum-up, so far we have 3x C, 1x firm B and 1x soon to become firm B.

So 3 cars free from rattle (always have been) and 2 cars which had rattle from sunroof but the problem has been resolved by adjustment / repair.

All of the votes were from 5D (hatch) cars.

Keep them coming guys as the stats do not look great so far. I am sure it is just matter of extremely small sample

Cheers

Thank you Sammy. Have you ever attempted to get it repaired by Honda?

Minor correction, mines a 5-door hatchback. And yep, flawless. Not a single rattle or noise anywhere. Cheers.

Going in for it's 1st Service

a) my sunroof is rattling or making other unwanted noises

5dr EX Diesel Auto September 2018 new.

Mine has creaked on the rear rubber when closed since new. Silicone spray stops it for about a week.
Mine rattles on the passenger side when open. I have greased it heavily and no change.

It goes in for it's 1st Service 12,500 miles at Swansway Honda Stockport next Friday 26th July (since my Crewe Dealership has now closed) and two of the items on the "to do" list is the sunroof.

Of course, a typo on my side. Thanks for pointing it out. We are still waiting for the first 4D report . I might be the first one when I finally take a delivery, however I will probably need to do some mileage first to be sure of what is what.

Cheers

That is not good. Plastics in my 9G were making some squeaky/ rattly noises on hot summer days (which luckily are not that often in this country) but this year which is a 4th summer of me owning it, it finally went almost completely silent. I guess I am prepared for some rattles as the car is worth it IMHO but it is just not ideal to put it politely.

I guess the sunroof rattle must be tolerable to extent if you were willing to wait 12k before trying to address it?
