I cannot find many answers to this by searching the forum or elsewhere.

I currently looking at a discounted 2017 Defy Advance. A few of the 2016 reviews mention a lot of internal cable rattle.

Anybody else experienced this or are they being a bit over the top?

i worked at a giant shop up until last month.

Giant's approach to internal cable routing is to run the full length housing through an additional foam tube inside the frame. Most cable rattle i have experienced on them comes from cables bouncing around outside the frame.

So, shorten all cables appropriately and do what you can to manage and direct them in ways that will reduce rattle.
