Hello to all,
I just picked up my 2016 Civic Touring Sedan last Saturday and I truly love it with the exception of rattling noises coming from the rear deck area while certain songs are playing. I found this Forum during a search about this issue and have read some valuable info here but figured I would contact the dealer as I am hoping Honda has a fix for this by now. Thanks for all the info thus far.
Good Stuff here......:D

Welcome to the forum and glad it's helping you! I think the best solution they could come up with was putting more padding around the speaker. Honda should definitely fix it since it falls under your warranty period and I'm sure they're used to fixing the rattle by now.

If you know for sure that rattling is coming just from the rear deck, buy think pieces of foam and fit it in where the shaky panels are. But I have seen some people go as far as uninstalling panels and fitting in rubber washers in the clips and screws, and that helps as well.

I am going to take a much closer look at the rear deck/trunk area in a little while to see what exactly is the issue(s)... Also, 1 of my remotes is failing to start my car...

Congrats and welcome! I took mine to the dealership for that, and they turned down the bass on my stereo that's their idea of a fix. I've seen others have put some foam around the speakers from inside the trunk, I'm going to try that as soon as it warms up a bit. Too darn cold still to go crawling around in my trunk lol

I know eventually someone is going to rip it apart and apply foam and even dynamat, it's just about the best thing to do if you're an audiophile; keep all the good quality bass you want without any distortion. Just dynamat sound proofing alone can do wonders. Good weekend job for the DIY'ers on here.

You should and it's easy to do, easy enough for even those just slightly mechanically inclined. Hardest part is probably removing the clips since some people tend to break them but even that is easy if you're patient
