Wind noise ? howling? whistling sound while driving?

Anyone else getting a wind noise constantly at any speed over 40 mph?

I have a whistling sound somewhere and it is really annoying. I've had it since I picked up the car 1000 miles ago. No idea where its coming from windshield? windows? side view mirrors? intake? sunroof?

I can't pinpoint the location but it happens every time i drive and is definitely not electrical in nature.

You are not the only one, I have it to. But I have decided to live with it than have the dealer replace stuff for no reason, it sounds to me its coming from RHS under the dash.

I have taped up the window and the front doors made no difference, still playing around as to where it might be coming from.

If I have music on it doesn't bother me but once I shut the music off it drives me nuts sometimes

Its only noticable over 80km and gets louder the faster you go.

My Overland is very quiet, but that might be because I'm used the wind noise in my 05 Trailblazer. It sounds like the window is open at highway speeds.

2014 summit and the noise drives me crazy. It seems like it's coming from the back windows/trunk area. It only has 2200 miles. Any recommendations?

The spoiler causing this?
Possibly not the spoiler itself but the gap between it and the body/window?

The roof rails?

Dunno if easy to remove blue paint masking tape would hold well enough to use to seal up gaps/holes to test?

I have a 14 limited with a whistle. Mine seems to come from power steering. I have a whine when turning and can hear the whistle around 10 mph.

Re: Wind noise ? howling? whistling sound while driving?

MY14 Laredo we narrowed ours down to dash/dash vent rhs or dash vent left of steering wheel.... Ours is right hand drive Australian version. Anything over 80kms and gets worse with speed. Actually makes more noise than roof rack and roof top tent. My son describes it as a slight rattle. It drives my wife to distraction and more after 8000kms of road trip with 16900kms total is now audible to me. As with a previous poster when the music I'd on not really an issue. When driving quiet it'd bloody annoying.

Cheers.
