Cool New Mercedes has a problem with the sunroof.

I know I'll be going back to the dealership to get this fixed but its a real pain since they are over two hours away. 2012 CLS 550. The sunroof rattles. It began not long after delivery. Doesn't matter if it is closed, fully open, or popped up. There is a prominent low pitched rattle directly over my head that occurs whenever the road isn't perfectly smooth (rare in California) and it even rattled the other day when I stopped at a light next to a kid with his stereo blasting.

We have had many cars with sunroofs and have never had them make noise. Is this a common problem with Mercedes? If any of you have experience with this, how long should it take for a repair? Obviously this is a warranty issue.

You must be close to Oregon border to have 2 hr drive to MB dealer?
I never had rattle on MB sunroof, but our W210 is having rattle at the ash try. Sometimes pushing the lighter socket stops the rattle, sometimes not.
Such a thing can be a nightmare, so consider yourself fortunate to have warranty.
If you don't go to the dealer soon > buy earplugs
