Third time into the dealership and they just keep making the noise worse. Hopefully the body shop will get to the end of this noise this time.

Edge SE 3.2L

Had the car a couple of days and finally got it on the turnpike and noticed the horrible wind noise it was coming from the drivers door and the back doors. The first time they said they would adjust the doors and it would fix it. I didn't even get it on the highway and it was back. Took it right back and they said again they fixed it. Nope try again. 3rd time, I had the manager come with me. He heard it and said they would fix it, and he said they did, but it was not fixed. The shop guy said there is nothing they can do for it. So I will continue to call every day, take it in every week if I have to, until something is done. I hate wind noise. It is horrible. The faster you go, the worst it gets.

Each time I go in for an oil change, I tell them about the excess wind noise, most noticeable on driver side, when traveling over 40 mph they say I need to go on a test drive with one of the service technicians and then leave the car. The dealership, Dean Sellers Ford in Troy, MI is not open on Saturdays and I work out of town. Last time I spoke with someone at the dealership, they told me to find another Ford dealer closer to where I work out of town so I can leave the car with them. I don't have a problem with leaving my car at a dealership but still need a car to travel for work while the car is being repaired.

Update from Mar 6, 2017: I have had the car in on three different times (multi-days each time) to try to correct problem. The first couple of times involved re-adjusting the driver side door alignment and then replacing the driver door weather stripping, both without success. During a winter ice storm, in which ice was covering driver side edge of windshield and A-pillar, the noise went away. After ice fully melted and had a chance to inspect further, I found a small gap (~12-15" long) between the A-pillar and the vertical aluminum trim piece (driver side of windshield) in which the adhesive was missing or improperly installed. We believe that is the source of the unusual wind noises. The dealer, Fox Ford in Cadillac, MI (they have been very helpful in trying to resolve, even though I did not buy the car from them) is now recommending that the entire windshield be replaced. Aluminum trim and windshield parts have been ordered, but are back-logged for a couple of weeks.
