I bought a new 2019 Chevy Cruze a couple months ago and when I'm driving over all but the smoothest of roads, I notice a vibrating sound coming from the dashboard area as if there's a small object loose. However, when I turn on the heating (even just a little bit), the sound pretty much goes away. If I turn the heating off, the sound often comes back.

This only started recently as the weather got colder in the winter, so I'm wondering if it could possibly be temperature-related. Additionally, the same vibrating noise would occur in my parents' RAV4, and we never could find out what was causing it there either.

Any ideas on what might be causing such a sound?

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! While I wouldn't have a clue what the noise is, you should have a 1 year "adjustment period" with your vehicle if you bought it brand new. You should be able to take it back to the dealership and have them figure it out, as long as your vehicle isn't over 12 months old (since you bought it). Least you could do is ask them. This comes with most new cars sold in the States and is provided by the manufacturer. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Dec 20 '19 at 13:45
