which door is it coming from?? for me haven't heard any sounds yet.. hopefully don't face the same rattling problem like you.......

my suggestion is if your car still under warranty, get champion to check it out for you as troubleshooting for this type of problem takes a very long time.. if u go outside workshop.. could cost a bomb.. not easy to find out the problem..

but usually it is just a loose screw or bad seal...

good luck with your problem bro!

The right rear and left front doors. Champion Motors said is the sound of the loose clips. It was better immediately after their rectification, but the problem came back again after a while.
 
I have a friend who is driving Suzuki Swift also have this problem. It makes me wondering if this is a common problem for Suzuki cars. Anymore feedback from other Suzuki owners on whether you have door rattle problem?
 
Bobby_sx, what is your mileage now?

yeah guessed as much.. my car 4 yr old.. mileage about 76k.........

did they change the clips for you? if even after they changed after awhile the sound came back means probably is a fault with the design..

did they say to go back if the rattle come back? maybe they have an alternative solution

I think they did not change the clips last time because they said they "insulated the clips". I don't know what it means.
Yes, I am going back to them soon...

Suppose the thing to do is to ask plenty of questions the next round and only leave after you are fully satisfied with the answer... Which servicing centre did you go to?

he went to champion motors..

bro have u tried asking them to change the clip altogether? can't imagine it being too expensive.. maybe 1$ per clip?

might be a small price to pay for peacefulness when u r driving.. haha
