    New Wind Noise

    2017 Mirage ES:

    Just this week, I started hearing a high-pitched and very annoying amount of wind noise from the driver's side. I cannot figure out exactly where it's coming from. It is a whistle.

    I know it's a bit vague, but has anyone else developed this?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure. I know my Mirage whistles on the highway, and it's worse depending on the speed and weather conditions. I have read a few reviewers who note the annoying whistling in Mirage's, so some whistling is normal.

    And I mean quite a lot of whistle noise at times in my 2014 Mirage, since day 1. If you think it's a door that isn't snug than that's something else.

    Does the noise change if the window is opened a bit?

    Yes I too have observed the noise from passenger side on highway when I was clocking 70+ speed. But not always. So it apparently is caused by the wind flow. thanks

    didn't you change the side markers or something to a new style not long ago?

    My 2019 has a load of wind noise but I attribute most of it to my universal aftermarket roof-rack.
    The whistling comes and goes just as dspace9 pointed out. Wind and weather make a huge difference. I've actually had such bad headwinds at times the entire roof sounds likes its vibrating from the wind going around the rood rack. Once I've made a turn and the headwind is now hitting the side of the car or at an angle, that's when I experience the whistling more than ever!!
