Is Genesis the new Buick, Oldsmobile, and Mercury?

Whenever I see the Genesis cars as well as the older Hyundai Genesis and Equus, I think of the 70s and 80s Buick, Oldsmobile, and Mercury cars, as well as other American brands, that made less expensive cars apeing Cadillacs and Lincolns. Is a Genesis G90 the modern day equivalent of a 1977 Oldsmobile 98 or 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis? Maybe. They are not build by the same companies as the more expensive competitors though. There was a time when Oldsmobile 98s and Buick Electras were known as “thinking man’s Cadillacs” because the similarly optioned, but less expensive cars were popular with people who were too responsible with their money and not show-offy enough to be seen in a Cadillac. Could Genesis become the “thinking man’s Mercedes”?

Side mirrors getting manually folded in by people?

I’ve parked on the streets at night (usually park after midnight) and recently I’ve been having my car wing mirrors manually folded in by the time I get to it in the morning (8-9am).

Is this considered vandalism, prank or harassment/threat? Malicious or honest mistake albeit rude? Have you had this happen to you?

Car isn’t even an expensive car relative to the neighborhood or anything. Just an ordinary VW with no power folding mirrors.

To me this feels like mild vandalism, or even approaching harassment if they are the same people doing it. I just don’t believe people accidentally knock on it while walking past, and if they did they were walking too close on a big side walk and rude for not even flipping it back. Plus, between 12am-8am the time window is pretty short so it narrows the population who’s gonna be out on the streets even further. Or maybe a thief is scoping out the car at night? Or is someone trying to send a message from that neighborhood?

There’s a rolling knocking coming from the rear of my Peugeot going around corners

At first, from looking online I thought it might be something to do with the CV joint but rather than the knocking coming when turning the wheel it sounds more like something rolling the width of the car and hitting against the body.

As it’s coming from the rear I’ve emptied the boot and ensured the spare wheel/tools are secure and not moving.

I have the car under warranty but need to drive almost an hour to their approved garage, does anyone here have an inkling of what it could be?

It’s a 2014 Peugeot 308 diesel.
