Recently, I read about the wind buffeting kit (or anti-buffeting) to cut window noise. Can anyone point me to the thread? The OP showed a picture of his red Volt. I searched but can't seem to find the thread.
I was at my dealer for a slow tire leak (all tires have developed leaks or nails) and I asked about the kit. The service writer knew nothing. The parts dept. wanted the part number. Thanks.

I asked about the wind buffeting kit last time I was at the dealership. They said that for used cars it isn't part of the warranty. It would be almost $500 to install it.

Before my initial warranty expired I spent a few hours testing wind buffeting, separately with 1, 2 and 3 people in the car, at steady speeds ranging from 20 to 85 mph. I was trying to decide if I should get the buffeting kit. What I found was that it is much ado about nothing- open either back window about 1 inch and the buffeting goes away,
Try it before you worry too much.

Mirror kit FP 22778043. Installed per DOC 3631926. The two parts are shipped
Primed. Dealer painted to match factory finish. Required 3 days.
Note: open-window buffeting was largely eliminated, but a low level windflutter seemed to increase slightly.
Bottom line: crack a rear window.
