When its cold stuff is gonna rattle. Not much you can do about it, unfortunately.
Actually getting rid of rattles can be done. It's a bleed over from audio guys, but vibration dampeners are available to take care of rattles, buzzes, and the like. The tricky part is tracking them down. Once you find it, you just slap a little 2"x2" square of sound deadener on it and it's gone. The big name is Dynamat, but I'd never recommend anyone buy that stuff. It's severely overpriced. Even a 50% off sale is more than equivalent products from places like secondskin, raammat, or alphadamp, and those are just some of the good ones. For non-audio related rattle control you could easily cheap out on a lesser quality product and cure these cold weather rattles. Peak and seal would work if you live in a climate that doesn't see 105+ on the thermometer, but it's asphalt based so you've got to be concerned with in-car temperatures or you'll end up with a pool of asphalt goo in your door.
In my 2 month experience with my '11 the challenger is in need of some treatment for rattles and buzzes. It only gets worse when you do upgrade the audio.
