    Is this normal? I experience low frequency noise (deep vibration/resonance) on tarmac with small vibrations. And on rougher roads. The liftgate sits pretty tight now, I've adjusted the screws as far out as I can. This is driving me nuts and I am starting to miss my previous car.. Please see attached screen shot from Dynabel Soundmeter app that I ran during driving. If anyone else could run a similar test in their car, I'd be grateful. Comments or tips appreciated!

    Let me add that it is most pronounced at low speed.

    Same problem with my S 100D; my previous model S (85D) did not have this issue.
    It is very tiring and annoying and sounds like someone is beating on a bass drum.
    The car was already several times in the SC where they acknowledge the problem but cannot find a solution (also adjustment of the tailgate stoppers is not a solution for this problem).
    The SC is very helpful and customer friendly but I'm a little disappointed that Tesla does not take their responsibilities to provide a solution!

    Many complaints about this. I have a cheap solution that has worked very well for me, search for this thread "Pressure Buffeting - Has anyone experienced it" (page 4). Also look for cab's solution in the same thread.

    Are you sure it's not just the sound of your tesla creating a sonic boom when you launch? :)
