New to this forum but have been reading about wind noise. New 1500 with terrible wind noise both front windows , I brought it today and they agreed it is unacceptable . It goes back to dealership Monday. Wind is coming through both front door windows . I can put inward pressure on door weather stripping and noise disappears.

Same with h mine, they are going to fix it.
would like to know when someone actually gets theirs fixed. Windy days in W TX are the norm. Chirping, squealing wind noise Ina $50k Laramie is not the norm.

Door was out of lignment on the front passenger side. I may have to bring it back for the right side as well. I could tell by looking at the doors that they were off as when you closed them they weren't flush with each other which they should be.

I hear some from the rear too, but I ride around with the back seats folded up all the time. I wonder if it could be coming from there? Maybe I will fold the seats back down and see if that makes a difference - I didn't notice any when I was test driving these trucks. In any case, doesn't bother me enough one way or the other to worry about it. I kind of figure a truck is gonna be a little noisier than a slip-stream car.

I have wind noise at highway speed with certain cross winds. Were they able to fix your issue? What was the repair?

I keep getting the run around. I told the dealer over the phone, now that I'm on spring break I have time to come and meet face to face. And if I am the only with this issue as they claim, then I must have a Lemon and need to file under the Texas Lemon Law. Probably won't have any effect on them but enough. Windy days are miserable to have to listen to this and in West Texas, hardly a day goes by without wind

I am also having serious wind noise at any speed. Seems to be coming from the rear of the cab but I can’t pin point it. Other then that one issue I love the truck. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Went in today. Salesman I bought from knows exactly the sound. Experienced it with one of the managers when they drove his on a windy day. They have no clue what it is. So back to square 1.

Solved! (For me, anyway). I added weather stripping around the edge of each door. For the fronts, I did not add the the hinge side as they seemed quite tight. The rear doors, I did add. I did not do the tops of any of the doors as those seemed quite tight as well. On the bottoms of each door I ran the stripping under the seal attached to the door. Test drive after install put me back in my happy place! I can’t believe how quite the cab is now...As some here say....tomb-like! I still may want to sound deaden the rear panel in the future for the left over road noise.
One roll per door, 7 bucks each. Wiped areas with alcohol first.
My best upgrade.

Same issue with mine and it's been in 5 times bow and was told today it still did not fix the issue! Waiting to see if I am offered a buy back before contacting lemon law attorney!

Hi @kjwilliams - I regret to hear that you are experiencing this concern with your truck. If it would be of interest, I would like to escalate your situation to a Case Manager which will provide the dealership and yourself with an individual who will review your concern, then assist you and the dealership in exhausting all available resources to have the concern addressed and resolved. Please follow up with me via private message to get the process started.
