Not sure where to post this, but here we go. I drove almost 400 miles to get my stinger and on the way home I went through an area with no cell service. I typically only listen to YouTube music and decided to just listen to the car for a while. Well very quickly I noticed what sounds like two body panels rubbing against each other with each twist of the road coming from the B pillar. Has anyone else heard this? Radio off, comfort on, and windows closed windows closed, it's the loudest thing I heard. It peaks louder than road noise. Don't get me wrong, it's not super loud, but the cabin is so quiet it really sticks out to me. Any ideas? TIA!!

Its a common issue on all years, comes from the rubber door seals moving when going over bumps in the road. Lubing the rubber seals with Shin-Etsu Grease or Sil-glyde or any other rubber trim grease should help alleviate or eliminate the noise. Other owners have tried more involved fixes, the grease works for me.
