Default Top down windows up rattle?

Hi everyone. I just got an 07 Vert on Sunday and I love it! I live in L.A. and we get sun almost the whole year so I'm looking forward to MANY topdown days. I have one issue though. When I'm driving the car with the top down and the windows up (front and back windows) and I go over a bumpy road I get a rattle from the windows. Specifically the the back windows. If I look at the windows from the back of the car (look at the edge) I can see that the two rear windows curve in just a little more than the front windows leaving a tiny gap. When the top is up the rattle goes away and the windows are flush. Is this normal? do all of your cars have the same thing when the top is down and the windows are up? Is there a way to fix it or is it just the way the car is designed?

Alex

It may look dorky but in West Michigan when the temp is 40 degrees its the only option if you want some sun.

PS.
The windows on my '05 don't rattle even on the cratered pavement they call roads around here. Your under warranty have yours checked!
