Have now got just over 10k on my Soul 2. The new paintwork is standing up well after 3k, just one small chip on the bonnet which is acceptable after 3k. The car has now developed a rattle from the tailgate that sounds like the boot latch, although I cannot find any movement in it. The latch does not adjust on the body even though it looks like it should. The only other thing it can be is one of the hydraulic tailgate struts. It is possibe to get the shaft rattling in the body of the strut. I will have it checked when it goes in for an early service before I take it over to Portugal for a couple of weeks. Will keep you informed of the findings should anybody else be unfortunate to get the same noise.
