    Toronto Lawrence SC's service is always excellent and above expectation. Unfortunately, the car is not. Even a tiny rattle becomes irritating when all you want is a quiet ride.

    Kudos to the guys for finally fixing my endless rattles:

    front door right
    B pillar right
    C pillar right
    rear door left

    Now the ride is 100% quiet and makes the S truly spectacular.

    GOTTA LOVE THE CAR!!!!

    So what exactly did they do to fix it? Did they explain?

    I've had a helluva time with rattles in this car and unfortunately have not been able to get many of them fixed. The Seattle Service Center has definitely been sub-par in this regard.

    Maybe they just closed the vent :cool:. Mine was rattling just to the right of the centre console screen and would stop when I pushed in below the vent. Then I realized just closing the vent stopped the rattle. I wonder if rattles are so noticeable because the car is so quiet at low speeds?

    My car has had a minor rattle in or near the rear left door since delivery. I haven't raised it with Tesla because I figured I'd wait and see if something else popped up, and nothing has.
