Mine still buzzes.
Thanks, that's kind of what I figured. Previous cars had allowed me to open the front passenger door from the inside when then doors were locked. Didn't know if my MiEV was different or defective.
As for the speaker rattle, no, I still have not corrected that issue. However, I now think it is something I couldn't correct even if I wanted to do so. Also, I have a sneaky suspicion the rattle will mostly go away in the winter. From playing around and experimenting, it seems the rattle occurs most prominently when the windows are rolled down. When the windows are up, the rattle is barely there or gone altogether. I think it might be the windows that are rattling in the door. Can anyone else confirm this? If this is the cast, is there any way to isolate the windows so they don't rattle?
