I would get creaking over uneven surfaces and on turns, any time there was any torsional stress on the car. Also, it seems that the rear vent (located behind the parcel shelf right below the rear window) makes a popping noise with temperature change. Many people complain of the cold causing rattle; for me it is the direct sun warmth. Anytime it would sit in the sun, the whole back of the car interior seemed to come alive with creaking, popping, and rattling. Lots of plastic on plastic that would expand with the heat and produce a shuffling noise. I want it to sound vault-like, and when I removed the interior trim, it was. Putting it back, I made sure all surfaces were felted that would contact other plastic or metal surfaces.
