i've never come across this in any other car i've been in.
I'm a bit surprised by that since it's a rather ubiquitous phenomenon. I'm also curious. Has your experience been mostly with smaller and/or luxury cars?

I drove an Explorer before my Outlander, and a few of my friends have SUV's (Pathfinder and Bronco I believe) that have never heard of that either....

Now you need to invite those friends out for a drive and initiate them to the world of throbbing eardrums.
#82 of 87 Outlander Noise Mirrors & window seals
Oct 23, 2007 (9:51 am)
I've had my outlander for 2 weeks (2wd XLS with Navigation) and in general I'm very impressed with the vehicle. However I have the wind noise issue (My car was 1st registered in January 07 so would have been an early one. My observations are as follows.
The wind noise is made of 2 parts, the mirror noise which sounds more like 2 parts vibrating - this appears to be well discussed. The 2nd source of wind noise appears to be from the windows.
What I've notices is that as the window is raised and hit the top stop the glass deflects out slightly. I assume this must be reducing the force on the window seal and causing cabin noise, if i lower the window a fraction (so still closed but just off top stop) the noise reduced to a more acceptable level.
Has anyone else experienced this window seal issue. Is there a know fix of it. If you do suffer from side window wind noise try slightly lowering the window and see if that has an effect.
The dealer is located 70 miles from where I live so i want to have all my facts in place before i pay him a visit

your observation seems to be correct. The wind noise got reduced somewhat when the window is lowered a fraction. Did you get the issue fixed?

Not yet - I've found a dealer closer to my home who I will take it to, but It's still 35 miles away so need to arrange a convenient time to take it.

I think this problem have been addressed somewhere here. But I think there is TSB that tell dealers how to solve this problem. This may be done free of cost because warranty issues.
