Wind noise

Hi everyone. Just acquired a 2010 GC Laredo. Everything is beautiful, except for the win noise on the driver side. I see other people have had this problem. I have visited the dealer and they said that it is just the way the model is...I do not buy that. The noise really bothers me, it is like the window were openned a little, but it is not. No air gets through. Would appreciatte any advice.

Welocme to this wonderfule place.

This drives me nuts to. I am going to try and adjust the driver's side rear passenger door latch to close tighter. When I go through a car wash, that has blowers, I can hear it at this door. All door seals look good, I can push on the passenger door (from the outside) and it will move 1/8" to 1/4".

Re: Wind noise

Re: Wind noise

The dealer is correct though in this instance. THe WK has poor build quality and large body panel gaps compared to other vehicles I have owned. The redesigned 2011 does not have this problem. Some on here claim their WK does not experience this, but I contest they have never owned a well built vehicle to compare to, if that is what they believe.
