      Wind noise driver side door '20 T6 Inscription

      Got this new May 30th. Test drive that day was raining quite heavily and by the time I drove the car in the dry it was a week later. Noticed lots of wind intrusion from around the A-pillar and driver side window. Brought to dealer and service manager confirmed issue. They replaced the driver front window guide weather stripping, then listed "Test drove customer complaint was still present". Then they say that they verified that noise was coming from the inner door seal strip, "replaced as per FTS and adjusted striker plate. No more excessive wind noise".

      They had the car for 10 days and I feel the issue is still there after picking it up last night, if there is no wind it seems ok but anything above a 5 mph crosswind and the wind noise is quite noticeable at speeds above 60 mph, I haven't had a car this loud in some time. Bordering on a whistle around 75 mph. Traded in a Cadillac Escalade ESV which might be part of the problem, that vehicle was extremely quiet. Just wondering if anyone here has experienced this issue (did a search but there didn't seem to be much relevant recent info) or had any comments about their experiences with wind noise in these vehicles.

      Did the dealer check your B pillar around the should harness connection. There is some insulation that can get dislodged.

      As far as I know they did not check that. Thanks for the tip.

      I have an appointment to take a drive with the service manager Thursday so hopefully that will have a positive outcome.
