    Air Noise

    I noticed that my driver's side window makes some whistling noise when i'm on the highway. I only heard it because i had the radio turned off. Is there any way to correct this or should i take it back to the dealer to look at? It only has 700 miles on it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Mine does it too. It's very quiet though. I think it might be some turbulence coming off the mirror or something. The mirrors make a lot of noise when you go over 135.

    Try rolling down the window and squeezing the 'triangles' that the side mirror is attached to together. This comes straight from my subaru tech...

    This happened to my bro's wagon. When he called the dealer they said that they knew exactly what to do since their have been many people complaining and servicing their cars for this reason. If you want, I can ask the service department what exactly they did to remedy this...

    I'm interested in this as well, I've had problems with mine for a few months, I used to be able to roll the window down a bit and back up and it would go away but now it just makes it a little less noticable. I'm pretty sure there is something loose in the door, cause it started sqealing when I put it up and down too and the air leak has gotton worse with time. I wish I could take it to the dealer to fix it but I can't be without my car. Let me know what you guys find out.-James

    Thanks for all the input. Glad to see im not the only one with the problem. Yeah, well_armed, if you could find out that would be great. I might just take it back to the dealer and have them fix it. I'm also having trouble with the trunk latch being too tight. I might as well have them adjust that for me as well.

    make sure the rubber around the door is on good, when my car came out of the body shop i was hearing wind noise, all it was, was the rubber around the door wasn't pushed on good, if you bump into it sometimes it pops out a little
