Question Extreme noise when window down!!!

I bought a brand new 2015 Cherokee trailhawk. If I roll any window down when traveling over 50 mph there is an extreme pulsating of wind noise like a helicopter is taking off!!! Local dealer says there is nothing he can do..... Deal with it. Not an option for me or my dog! We like our windows down. Does anyone know of something we can do?

a known physics phenomenon (venturi effect).

Need to wind down one other window (only slightly) to relieve the pressure difference.

^^ This.

I get the drumming effect with the roof open as well. Pop a window open, just slightly, and all is good.

Sometimes weathershields can help... sometimes they make it worse. Might be worth a trial fit if opening a window a little bit on the other side doesn't appeal.
