Wind Noise

Post by GK66 » Sun Feb 26, 2017 8:57 am

I seem to have annoying wind noise, not sure if it is coming from door or window. I'm not sure if this is normal or my expectations were too high. Before I go back to the dealer I wanted to check with other owners if they have the same concern. Cheers

In some reviews was mentioned wind noise appears driving around 80km/h or faster. There's an accessory - wind deflectors

It certainly sounds like an open window - I've had to check them several times, but it is just poor door soundproofing of the doors. This is why I am planning to add aftermarket vibro and sound insulation to all four of them.

Juliano, what kind of aftermarket vibe and sound proofing? Any details please share.

Well, it will depend on the garage which I will choose for installation. One is certain however - it will not be Dynamat due to pricing. Most probably it will be STP or SilentCoat products, but the project will include 50% coverage of the external door panels and fully covered internal ones. Something like this:

Mine does it at 40mph. Put your window down half way and tug the window gently. It moves an inch left to right and seems super thin. It just doesn't seal nicely on the door frame. Might as well have my punto back ha ha. Didn't notice on my test drive but he insisted he needed the fans on full blast for heat. Now i know why.

I could reproduce the wind noise at 40 km/h today but I've seen it in many other cars and I normally don't drive with windows open for two reasons.

1. You collect dust.
2. Wind interrupts good music.

To reproduce the noise keep the front windows completely closed and just open the rear windows half way through. Start driving between 40-50 km/h. You should start hearing the syndrome. To kill the noise just let some wind through the front windows or move the rear windows higher up. Again this is common noise for many cars not C-HR specific.

I noticed it too while taking a test drive and yes it sounds like an open window.
Not good for a 25k € car.
