    Hey all, anyone else experienced a sharp whistling or howling from cross winds
    on the side windows ? If you're not expecting it, it will scare you pretty good LOL.

    Are your windows sealing tight against the rubber moldings?

    Never noticed, but this car is a pleasure with the windows open, no strong winds, or noises, just right to hear the Hemi roar.

    Hi SRT Tom; Yes the window seals are good, I figured out why it happened. Driving at highway speeds with windows up w/ air on and got a cross wind causes a sharp pronounced ( squeal ) ? noise.
    Thanks.

    You can help this by putting your ac in recirculating mode when you experience these conditions.
