I have 2 small issues that I would like to know if it is common. I have a 2010 Terrain AWD I4. #1 I hear an engine noise resonance as it is revving up at 2100 rpms and at 3100 rpm especially with the air conditioning on. It isn't drastic but it is definately noticeable. #2 While driving crossway over a driveway approach for example, (trying to twist the car), I hear what sounds like the hatch creeking. This is quite loud. Are these things normal or should I have them checked out? Thanks for you input.

for #2, driving on an angle from a level road into a drive way that is on an incline will essential cause some torsional twist on the body. Although you think the suspension would compensate for most of the effect but would vary depending on the angle of the driveway, how much the suspension is already loaded from the weight and also the position of the weight in the vehicle and cargo area ect..ect..
I notice this slightly and can almost kind of feel the forces on the body and supension components when I back in to my drive way, however; I don't really hear any creeking in the hatch.
I'd have it checked out at the dealer

rwterrain,
If you think you may have a problem I would definitely recommend getting your vehicle in to the dealer. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Atleast I've resolved the hatch noise issue. I cleaned all the contact areas between the door and the body and put a small amount of grease on the latch hook faced that contacts the round latch on the body. No more noise. I'll check with the dealer on the resonance issue.
