2013 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

While driving on the highway, my son opened the rear passenger window, when he opened the window the noise and pressure on our ears was unbearable, it was like an extremely loud helicopter noise. We even tried opening other windows in the car to reduce the pressure and noise, while the noise and pressure were reduced it was still very loud and distracting. I called the Toyota dealer where we bought the car and he said all cars do that and to just open another window to relieve pressure. When I told him we tried that and it did not work he did not have any other answers. The dealer gave me a phone number to Toyota service, I called them and the rep said she had checked and they have never heard of anything like that. After checking on the internet I have found multiple instances where other people have had this issue, the noise is so loud it actually hurts your ears drums. If we were told about this issue when we were purchasing the car I doubt that we would have bought it. The noise and pressure start at approx. 35 mph and gets worse the faster you go and only when 1 or both of the rear windows are down. Toyota gave me a case number and told me to take the car back to dealer so they can duplicate the issue but the dealer was/is already aware of the issue. We feel that Toyota needs to identify the cause and offer a repair option, other than not using the back windows as that is our only option at this time.
