I’m waiting for a new A200 but I’m a bit concern about some rattles, noises and poor build assembly and also some not very good plastics.

Can anyone give some thoughts?
Any experience, is it easy to sort it out?

Not very good plastics - is that from watching some youtube car reviews? I think the interior is one of the cars big selling points, and the plastics they refer to are low down out of sight and cease to bother you as soon as you sit in the car. The only rattling I had in my new A200 was traced down to the pair of sunglasses I put in the top centre holder.

I haven't had any rattles from my a200 and been going over some rough roads lately. I also live on a roughly made street and no issues.maybe some tiny creaking when going on rough stuff but meh. I love my car. As others have said, the interior in our cars is easily the best in class which outweighs any tiny noises. Hope you can find your rattle soon.

Yes - I had an annoying rattle due to sunglasses in the holder. Maybe some felt or similar in there might stop it.

My dash is annoying as ****. There's a plastic on plastic sounding rattle on the passengers side and what sounds like a squealing mouse behind the screen on the drivers side. Had it into Mercedes when it first started and they said they couldn't do anything. The mouse is constant as soon as the engine is turned on it starts. At certain speeds/with certain road conditions it comes and goes, but its there the majority of the time.

in my W177 the rattles come from the dashboard. if I keep it tight they disappear
grabbing it with your hand and holding it either towards me or towards the front

I will also bring the car for the first service in early November. I will do this but I think they will think that I am the usual boring and they will not do anything about it
