Only with the wierd noise thing. I had the same issue this morning. Wierd noise, turn down music, nothing. Wierd noise, turn down music, nothing.... I think it was just the passenger seatbelt hitting the door. Spent a few minutes wondering how vital it was that The Missus be buckled in....

Unfortunately, cleaning my car this year has been kinda secondary. Gave her one good hand wash. Emptied the misc crap from road trips, but haven't vacuumed or anything in who knows how long..

Heck yes I am. It drives me crazy when I turn onto a higher elevation (ie driveway higher than road) and I hear plastic adjusting in the back. My car also got sideswiped well it was parked and they replaced the mirror, since its been replaced whenever you roll down the passenger window there is a whisling noise. That really drives me crazy

And recently the front of my car has been squeaking when I go over bumps. Anyone know how to fix that?

I don't think I am. I believe I am "perfectly normal". Others seem to think that I may have a certain perfectionism, and OCD tendencies but, I see that as their problem.

My car needs a vaccuming, but there is no junk, anywhere. Only some insurance stuff in the dash, and a visor on the back floorboard, and a box of detailing stuff in the trunk. My car is almost always clean on the outside. Vaccuming and engine cleaning go hand-in-hand, usually once every month. Mechanically, a squeak/rattle is tended to immediately, and on the weekends when I get bored, I check all fluids and filters. I'm not as bad with my truck, b/c it is a truck, but it'* clean for the most part.

Tell us the truth, why we're you really reaching back? Do Tell.

I haven't heard any clunks or squeaks yet, but I am obsessive about checking my car in parking lots. When I come out and someone is parked too close, I walk around the whole car, rubbing anything that looks like it might be a scratch.

I used to have a jpg of mickey mouse shooting the finger with a nice little poem about parking too close. I printed it and put it on a couple of windows, but I have lost the image and ran out of copies.

Like I said earlier, I'm not that anal about noises in my car. (it'* a joke, get it?)
If someone that can hear tells me that there'* a noise, I'll probably ask him/her "is it bad?" and if he/she say no, I'll usually get to it later.

Vaccuming? Yeah I'm a bit slow on that part. Keeping the car'* exterior clean? Well slightly retarded on that part too... Hell if it looks clean it'* fine.
