    So over the last few weeks I've noticed a noise coming from the rear of my car. It primarily occurs when I'm going around a corner or changing grades (i.e. turning onto my uphill driveway, etc.). It SOUNDS like the power hatch. More specifically, I think as the body twists/torques slightly the hatch may be twisting upward ever so slightly and the power hatch struts are pulling it back down...or it could be just the cinching actuator. I do keep my hatch stops pretty tight to avoid the buffeting sensation.

    Anyway, has anyone encountered anything similar?
