#2 of 4 wind deflector
Aug 14, 2011 (4:37 pm)
I have 11 OUtback with sunroof and air deflector. In fact my last few cars, including 06 Tribeca, 08 Altima Hybrid, 09 Forester and now this car I have had them installed. I talk on the phone constantly, and roof open often I couldn't tolerate the wind noise without one of those. I will tell you this... I had wind deflector installed on my 09 Forester when I got it. Made a terrible air "vibration" when I first got it. Thought I would have to have it removed. Turned out if the roof is not open 100% that will occur. Of course, the Forester had a huge sunroof, not the case with the Outback.
The one negative about wind deflectors is that you will get very little circulation of air. There are times I have forgotten the roof was even open. That can be dangerous if roof is left open and it starts to rain out.

There has been a recall on the 2011 Subaru Legacy sunroof. I took mine in today because the sunroof at first had a windnoise. It wouldn't stay down, and I had to keep closing it. Then, it almost completely blew out when I was driving on the highway. I had to drive with the sunroof open to keep the sunroof from blowing off. I checked, and the Outback sunroof has been recalled as well. The wind noise is not normal.

Have had min 11 outback with wind deflector, absolutely no wind noise at all. Reason I got wind deflector; I am on the phone constantly and it elmininates most all of the wind noise. Would never have a car with sunroof without a wind deflector!
