Windshield wind noises.. noises started 7 months and 9900 miles after possession of vehicle. Starting hearing whistling noise when drive vehicle @ low speeds on windy days. Took vehicle into the shop and they replaced both moldings and adjusted fender. Took vehicle back into the shop a month later with same problem. They preformed bulletin #04-078. Drove vehicle additional 2000 miles and wind noise started again. This time I had other dealership in town try to fix windshield. Picked up vehicle and drove it out of town and rt. Windshield moldings came loose. Pulled over and noticed that dealership had scratched and dented fender and windshield post. Pulled back the loose and flapping moldings and noticed that they had shoved a red shop towel in the fender/windshield area to stop the noise. * this proper procedures in the repair manuel** shoving red shop rags in the fenders to stop wind noise?? what to do now - fender and windshield post and quarter needs to be repainted - I now have lost value on vehicle because vehicle will be painted and windshield molding is held on by duck tape. --fyi, windshield moldings are only held in with double sided tape clips - double sided tape will only hold for a couple of years, before they deter ate and they will need to be replaced.. factory did not think of the longevity of the windshield moldings. Many, many more people will continuously have problems with wind noise.

Defective windshield. Windshield has waves throughout causing visual impairment while driving. Waves are very prominent on the passanger side, but less of an issue being that they are on the opposite side. One prominent wave through driver's side causes headaches and dizziness due to optical effect. Taken in to dealership who acknowledges the problem. However, they refused a replacement saying that they are all defective, so there would be no improvement.

The piece on either side of the windshield to get the water to go off the top of the van instead of the side windows, is bad. My dealer said that the maker knew about the problem. There has been no remedy yet. Due to the bad pieces, the windshield whistles once you hit 45 mph or higher. I am taking it in now for the third time to see what they can do about it. In addition to being distracting while driving, I am concerned about my resale value when the time comes, if a prospective owner test drives it and hears that sound. Very frustrated and can't find on the internet any other complaints about this problem. The service dept said that they have had others with my van that complained about the same issue, so I am concerned about why it hasn't been addressed on a broader scale by the company.
