I have excessive wind noise coming from the passenger side of the vehicle at speeds 50 mph and above. It doesn't matter if there's no wind or a cross wind, there's wind noise above 50 mph. I took my Traverse to the local Chevrolet dealer, who "said" they tapped off the windshield and found no air leaks. Needless to say, nothing got fixed. I did find on the internet that another Traverse owner had their windshield pulled then reseated and that stopped the problem. Another owner stated they had a strip of insulation put into a gap, and it worked for a little while, then started up again. It's a shame to drive such a nice and comfortable vehicle and have to listen to that awful noise. Chevrolet needs to find a permanent fix to this problem that seems to have happened over several model year.

outside air noise at 60 mph and above very annoying. Dealer tells me it may be the roof racks but I need to make an appointment first. Search internet for prior years and they all say the same thing as what I am having. Looks like chevy has not found a way to correct noise.
