Sounds like a window is cracked. At 25 mph it can be heard and I've yet to isolate where it is coming from but it sure is noticeable and it gets worse as speed increases. Anyone else notice this?

+1 to double-checking. Add doors and rear hatch too. If you have a helper and a leaf blower, you can set it on low and run wind around each window/door edge and see if someone inside actually hears it.

I have this issue; the noise comes from the front passenger area right?

I had the dealership look at it but they couldn't fix it.The head tech jokingly suggested it was because I'm a 20 something with intact hearing but now I'm wondering if that's sort of true because you're not the first person(besides me) to be noting this issue

Put painters tape around the windshield and go for a drive. If the noise goes away, tell the dealer the windshield is set incorrectly. If it stays, the wipers could be set wrong.

I notice similar noise as well, particularly compared to the Gen1 I had previously which was quieter on the highway. Let me know if you isolate it. I was guessing it might be the "pop out" taillights, which Gen1 did not have.

In Generation 1 ,the noise comes from the upper posterior corner of the drivers window ,next to pillar B, and improves fillling that area where the window stops, with flexible insulating ruber tubing,( small diameter.). You could stop the wind sound with your hand ,pushing over the isolation ruber of that area ,that will help you to locate the noise. Good luck.

Thanks for this. Been looking for a good answer to this issue in my Gen 1 for months and know what I'm doing this weekend. Dealer tech had nothing--while I like them, they're just not as good with "quality of drive" issues as they are with more serious mechanical/electrical failings (where a computer can tell them what's wrong). I've had my steering wheel in there four times to get rid of its squeakiness. Guess what? Still squeaks. Maybe someone will post a DIY fix for that someday.
