Angry 2014 QP6 Wind and Rear end noise

I have a 2014 GTS 30k miles under warranty. Two things driving me crazy and the dealer is clueless.
Wonder if anyone else has experienced:

1. Drivers side door sounds like I'm driving with the window open slightly. Dealer says nothing wrong . I have placed GAP tap around the seal of the door and the noise reduces significantly. I asked, but denied, to just replace the seals. Seems pretty simple and cheap way to correct.


2 There is a distinctive CLUNK when you put the car from Park to Drive to Reverse. There used to be a double clunk but they replaced some bushings and now I am down to 1 clunk.

Again going back to a different dealer this time for both items. Its an hour further out but larger dealer and i assume more experienced technicians.

All in all its pretty weak support on the maintenance and warranty of these cars.. Something I would never expected.

Is your window shutting completely. Occasionally my driver window drops a fraction as you open the door, but fails to come back up when you close it.

I just purchased a 14 QP GTS and also have this "clunk" noise that you describe when shifting into reverse or drive and also when downshifting to first when the care is in NOT in manual. Any luck getting this fixed? I am trying to figure out if this noise is okay or if I am doing damage by not fixing it.

Did you figure this issue out? I also have a 14 QP GTS with the clunk downshifting to 1st in Auto mode. I still have a few months of warranty left, so I wonder if I should request a transmission oil change, or if there is some other mechanical issue.

I have no idea what this clunk noise is but if I were you I would get it addressed if you have a warranty. Keep us posted on what the noise actually is!

Well I took my car to one dealer, they test drive it and said it was fine. Took it to a second dealer, sat in the car with a tech and shifted from P to R to D a few times, and he agreed that the clunk was abnormal. Dealer ended up replacing the differential under warranty, and the clunk is pretty much gone. My loaner cars were a ghibli and levante, and neither one had the clunk, so it's Def not normal.

Also have more-than-normal wind noise on the driver side of my 2017 Gransport. Dealer supposedly adjusted the window - no help. Seems like the seals are dried out and just don’t seal, but no offer from the dealer to address it. The window is going up all the way. Just not sealing on the vertical edge.

Very annoying. Anyone have this and find a resolution?
