Default New car door sound

You ever close a new car door and hear that nice crisp shut? No clangs, bangs, rattles? You know what I'm talking about? Well I want my car door to sound like that. My aunts 98 ssei has the same sound I want. I was thinking of buying new weatherstripping and gaskets and seals for the door frames. Do you all think that this will help? I think it would be a fun and easy project. Thanks for any input.

It seems like the internal parts inside the door might become loose over time, causing that sound or feel.

also check to see if the door panel is loose at all, those cheap panel clips do break and cause things to rattle and come loose. this next weekend im going to take my pass. door apart and fix the lock....would be a good time to re tighten everything inside as well
