2017 G80 Interior Rattle

I recently purchased a 2017 G80 3.8 Ultimate, and although I really like this car, I noticed a rattle over bumps (don't hear it on smooth highways). The rattle sounds like metal, maybe a spring or coil? Only thing is I cannot determine where exactly it is coming from. At first I thought from the rear seat area, perhaps the lid where the rear speakers are mounted, or perhaps the rear sunshade. However, after taking it in today and getting a loaner, the loaner is doing the same thing and now it sounds more like it is coming from the front console area. The loaner is a base model, so it wouldn't be caused by anything on the option packages. Has anyone experienced this yet? If so, have you been able to isolate what is causing the noise? Thanks in advance!

Don't know if this helps. I had a "rattle" a while back that I heard when going over very rough roads which seemed to be coming from the console area, but I couldn't quite be sure. My car was quiet as a mouse on smooth roads and even on mildly bumpy roads, but on very rough roads I would hear the "rattle". Days later I noticed a single Skittles hard candy in the gap between the seat and the extendable thigh support cushion (I have mine extended about 1"). I had been eating Skittles a few days earlier and I had dropped a few in my lap while I was driving. I thought that I'd gotten them all, but one obviously dropped into the gap unnoticed by me. When I removed it after finding it, I never heard the "rattle" on rough roads again. The gap between the seat and the extendable thigh support cushion has a hard plastic spacer and I'm guessing that the "rattle" I was hearing was that the hard candy bouncing on the plastic surface. Or perhaps it's just a coincidence.

I have 7000 miles on mine (bought in Oct - I drive a lot!). No issues with rattles.
Hopefully the dealer can figure it out!

On a previous car I was experiencing a rattle much like the one described here. It turned out to be my eye glass case in the driver's door pocket. I set them on a folded microfiber cloth and that prevented the case from rattling against the hard sided pocket. As to my '17 G80, it's the most quiet car I've ever had. I hope they can fix your rattle. Anything loose items in the glove box banging around?

Check the front passenger seat belt... it could be hitting the side post...try buckling the belt and do a drive test

I recently started to get a rattle in my dash. It has gradually been getting worse. I'm guessing there's a loose clip or something around the nav screen. If I press on the trim above the hazards button, it seems to help. Pretty bummed about it since it's such a quiet car otherwise.

Is everything secured in the trunk?

Yes, I did check there first. Thanks

I removed everything from the glove box as well and it is still there. Thanks

It does seem at times like this is coming from the dash. It is at the dealer now so I will keep everyone posted on what they find in case anyone else runs across this problem. Thanks.

I have the same problem, I have the rattle sound coming from the rear passenger seat area, I think it is the door . I took it to dealership, they could not find the problem.
I don't think there is much the dealership can do to fix it, it is hard to locate the sound also for them to find it, they have to pull apart the doors and the seats, that will result in more rattle when they put it all back together.
To me it is the quality issue, I have 15000Km on my car.
