Interior adjustments under warranty

Does the standard warranty continue to cover all interior adjustments and rattles during the warranty period? I've got a rattle in the right rear where the pillar meets the rear deck. It's quiet when it's cold and drives me nuts when it's hot out. I had my wife drive me around so I could isolate exactly where the noise is coming from.

Not worth a visit to the dealer just to fix this problem, so I figured I'll just wait until the next service.

I had a rattle in the same place, when it's warm out. Good news, it's covered....bad news....they couldn't find the cause.

I have a strange buzz around the dash area that only happens at partial throttle with certain engine harmonics. I doubt they will find it since so hard to make it repeat. What sucks is the days it just keeps happening when in traffic. This is not the first time my car has had a sound from the dash area. I must say interior rattles/buzzes probably are the biggest thing that can bug me with any car.

Get the tech to go for a ride so you can replicate the problem. They'll rarely get it right if you try to describe it only.

My issue is I can only seem to make it happen when sitting in morning traffic for Bellaire High. I doubt the tech will go for that ride
