Too much hard plastic = too many chances for squeaks, rattles, buzzes to develop. Plan to bring my car in to the dealer because it sounds like the front door panels are rattling/buzzing while driving over rough sections of pavement. Currently has less than 80 miles on the odometer.
I suspect the upper part of the door panels just below the window since there is some "give" all along that section and putting pressure on the area makes the noise go away. The lower B-pillar trim is suspect too. BTW, the rear doors have less "play" in the panels.

For those who have removed their door card(s)/panel, is it held on only by push pins (no bolts/screws?) and is it completely made out of plastic or is there something like fiberboard underneath? Sadly, my 20-year old Mustang's doors feel better put together. Guess I better start looking for foam tape or felt if the dealer is unable to take care of it.
