Default Noise in the car

Dear BHPians

I am the proud owner of a Silver Adventure 1.6.
The car is sleek and is fantastic to drive. Its power is great.
My problem (which i need to confirm with Anuroop Motors) is i feel there is some cranky sound inside the car. I feel this especially when i start the car and i feel as if all the hinges and screws are loose. I feel this comes from the doors/windows and this sound is too irritating.
Does anyone has similar experience.
Thanks.

Are you sure it's the door and hinges ?? How many mile shave you clocked and over what kind of terrain ?? Did you check the roof rails ??

Yeah. The noise comes from under the seats or from the doors.
I drive on the western express highway. The roof rails are perfect. Have clocked in around 350 kms.
Can you please help.

I had a similar problem wid my Zen.

Investigate the problem properly... stop the car, and test each door one by one. With your hands (you can also use the mobile vibrator or anything battery operated which has moving parts), slowly shake each door and try to reproduce the problem.

If the fault is with a door, get the door serviced. They open it and check if the windows, hinges are tight.

If the sound come from the front, your rear-view mirrors cud be loose.
