2018 Outback - Wind Noise

Recommended Posts

Hi all, apologies if this is a known issue and has been raised a number of times already. I did try & search this issue, but didn't really see any similar thread.

I'm actually posting for a relative who has a 2018 (68) plate Outback. He is having what appears to be wind noise coming from the front of the car at higher speeds. I've searched this online, and note the many comments and videos that are circulating. However, these mainly seem to be in the States, and on older models. They seem to relate to window seals/gussets. I can't really see anything on this newer model, but am thinking that, due to the cars age, it may just be that his seals/gussets are now getting to a point where they are failing. 

Just wondered if anyone else on here has this issue and/or if there is a thread on this already?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Not heard of this myself although having wind deflectors on the windows is quite a common aftermarket addition on imprezas - Couldn't get on with them personally as I found they restricted my vision going around right corners / islands

Hi Mark.  I can't say I've noticed any issues with my 2020 OB, Gen5.  Has this issue recently started with the car, or since purchased? Any issues with the powered side mirrors not fully setting in position? Perhaps a door or window seal is out of alignment?  When you say higher speeds, I'm guessing you mean at motorway/dual carriageway driving.
