Hey all. New here.

Just got my new Blazer RS 2 days ago and there has been a rattling sound or something similar since I drove it off the lot. I had not installed anything at that point. Tried removing the rear cargo bar...it’s not that.

Sounds to me like it’s coming from inside the cabin. But can’t figure out what could be rubbing together or banging that would cause this. It’s fairly noticeable any time you drive over a few miles per hour. Can’t tell if the sound is more plastic or metal.

holy crap I have the same problem...it sounds like if a glass is loose but am thinking its the rear seat that has the center seat attached...when you sit on it doesn't make that noise...
am taking it to the deal next week for them to try to figure it out...driving me nuts you can hear it all the time just cruising down the hwy

It seems like it was coming from that side as well when the dealership looked at mine. I’m not 100% sure what they fixed but seem to have fixed it. However now I have a much smaller rattle/noise coming from either the passenger door side or one of the pillars :)

So I was right the seat behind the driver seat is the one that is rattling....if you bang the top where the head rest is you get the noise...so lets see how they are going to fix this

YES!!!! I am having the same issue. I took it to the dealership and all they did is move my back seat up two clicks, but it comes back. They tried to say it was my sunroof (a lie), and it wasn't secure. Drove it in the parking lot, the rattle came back like it never left. I took it right back. Now let's see how they lie this time.

I have had my 2019 AWD V6 Blazer back to the dealer 5 times for interior rattles. I got it the end of February and currently have 16K miles on it. After 4000 mi I heard a snapping sound coming from above the b-pillar on left side. It occurs going down the freeway on bump roads. Related to temperature. Dealer ordered the trim at top of B-pillar with the seat belt up and down adjustable retractor Technician said the plastic broke away from the clip. Had another rattle from passenger window area. The molded plastic around the inside door frame rattled. Technician put some foam strip under it and and it worked for 2 weeks. Rattle came back as well as plastic molding around the left rear window frame. Brought back and supposedly got fixed. 2 weeks later had rattles on right interior door panel. I looked at it myself because I was getting very irritated bringing back to dealer. Found one of the door panel clips pulled out of door panel and another not even pushed in hole but next to it and cocked. I believe the last technician did not put this together correctly. I put all the clips in correctly and that fixed that rattle for a few months. Ended up putting foam tape in areas under the passenger door panel. Weeks later, the upper trim around interior door frame started to rattle again. I put foam tape around all of plastic trim . The left rear upper trim around interior door frame started to rattle again. I put foam tape all around that plastic trim. A month later had rattles coming from both b-pillar areas again. I took left side apart and found the metal v-clips that go into the slot of the metal body vibrating. I put foam tape over the metal clips and snapped trim back in. Did this repair on the right B-pillar trim as well. Weeks later heard different noises from both B-pillars. Took apart and put in quilt foam insulation under the entire B-pillar trim. After a month of no rattles the original snapping noise above the drivers side head liner came back. I took the headliner down on the edge and and inspect. The side air bag was making the noise. I lined the headliner and air bag with in the same quilt foam insulation. All snapping and rattles were gone for a month. The same snapping noise by the drivers side air bag was back. Tried to adjust the insulation but noise was still there. The passenger door started rattling at times as well. The backs of both front seats had come unsnapped as well. Brought the Blazer back to dealer this morning for the 2 rattles and the seat back coming apart. I have owned 12 GM vehicles over the years of which 6 were brand new and had good luck with all. This whole poor quality interior fit with this snap together cheap plastic crap makes me feel like this $40K vehicle was not the right choice this time around. I usually keep my vehicles 8 to 10 years but having this many rattles after 8 mos makes me want to trade it in already. With the GM strike and very limited parts available GM is very disappointing these days.

Wow Jerry. That’s super frustrating and I am sorry to hear that. We are still working through rattles on my side...through the worst one was fixed.

I love the car in many ways but wonder if I made the right decision as well.

Good Luck with your rattles too. I also love the Blazer. It rides great, very quiet, handles great, V6 sounds and performs amazing, good fuel mileage and love the looks....especially now that I had the chrome grill surround painted the same as the body color.

Very nice. I like it a lot. You did a good job there.

I really like the colors on my white RS, even though I’m not much of a white car guy.

But I’m thinking of having the top of the car painted black to match the black roof rails and the bottom trim. Lots of cars out there like Volvo and range rover with that look.

Looks sharp! I have not seen a white RS in person yet! So I picked up my blazer from the dealer this afternoon and got two blocks away and still heard the snapping noise in headliner and the rattle in the right door. They also forgot to attach the seat backs in place. Turned around and dropped back off. They gave me a new silverado loner. Very frustrating.

Ugh. So sorry. Mine is going back this week for the passenger door noise. I have half thought about just trading in for a Silverado.

That's what I was originally going to get but couldn't pull the trigger on 60K and 20MPG. My passenger noise started with the plastic trim around the top of the door frame. If I put a finger between the glass and the trim the noise stopped...hence the foam tape. I hate rattles. Good luck!

I feel ya. I was the same. It’s truck month and you could get a 4x4 LTZ pretty loaded for 45k, but I would lose about 5Gs trading in a month old Blazer.

So I have been dealing with the rattling and other issues with this brand new car. Called GM customer care solutions. The information is that has come back to me is "Some rattling noise is acceptable and is not covered under warranty" David Burns GM Field Engineer Technician. I'm so disappointed with GM personal, they don't care the we spend our hard earn money. They don't care that they have inadequate quality assurance coming out of Mexico. But I will say that this Veteran is very disappointed and I'm sure officials at GM don't know we are being treated this way strike or no strike.
