I left my car at the dealer today so they could "fix" whatever is making the sunroof sounds...they gave me this brand new Corolla S
to drive...its a crappy car, I already miss driving my car! Oh yeah they are fixing my driver's side window too...it got messed up when I got my tint done..Everytime a rolled the window back up it would make sounds like it was catching on something and there'd be lines on the window.....Hope they wash the car before they give it back..

Let us know how the "fix" goes. I'm thinking about taking mine back, but so far it isn't really bothersome. Just freaks me out when I hear it b/c sometimes it sounds like a rock or something hitting the car. EEK.

I swear mine makes that noise too... but when the technician rode with me... he thought it was the suspension. Anyways... I plan on bringing it back when toyota puts out their service bulletins...

My vin is 8254

Ok guys, the dealership just called me, they said the headliner(whatever the crap that is) in the sunroof is deformed and they have to replace bc the sunroof is not sitting all the way down which is where the noise is coming from. But the part is on backorder, so they said it may take 5 to 10 days!! But at least no more Corolla S for now....just thought I'd let you guys know

Ok, for some reason now they want me to stay in this car until the part comes in...this just gets better and better, I hope they at least wash my car and put gas in it when I pick it up...

hmm.. i'm not gonna fall for that trap of letting them keep my car that long to fix
that noise..

it doesn't really bother me that much since it doesn't occur that often

There is no way I would let them keep my car that long while they waited for a part to come in. I would tell them to give me back my car and call me when the parts are in to fix it.

Yeah I was thinking about the time issue, and they at least have to wait til tomorrow when the service manager is in(bc the issue is being monitored by Scion reps since i called and complained). I'm gonna swing by on my way to class and get my car back til they get that part. Hmmmphf between this and the insurance issues, I'm getting a headache....

Hmm... anyone notice a pattern to the popping noise??

Does it happen...

a.) When sun roof is closed
b.) When sun roof is tilted open
c.) When sun roof is open all the way
d.) Going over speed bumps
e.) Going over small bumps
f.) Going in/out of driveways
g.) Going over dips
h.) Making turns
i.) All of the above
j.) Other.... please explain

I was thinking about a poll but the answers could be a combination of the above...

I've only driven 350 miles in four days and I'm starting to get little noises in the moonroof. It creaks once in awhile on bumpy roads, but otherwise, I get little rattles that aren't too bad. It doesn't bother me very much yet, but I think I'll wait till all the dealerships get the bulletin on it cause I asked the salesman when I bought the car and he said the popping noise is just a side effect of having such a big moonroof. They haven't gotten any info from Toyota to fix it. We'll see.
