    whistling/sqealing noise coming from front end

    I have a 2011 Cruze that is only about 4 months old - only had 24 miles on it when i bought it.
    For about a 1-2 months I have noticed when my windows are down I can hear a whistling/squealing noise from the front end.. At first it was only on the drivers side and it was very faint.. Over the course of a few weeks it has became louder. So I took into the dealer and they said it was from the wind hitting off my side mirrors and they put padding it. But it was still happening, I called them and said its still making the noise and I dont get how it can be a whistling noise going at 10-15 mph.. So I took it back into the dealership a second time, when a several test drives with a tech and they shaved down my drivers side rotor.. I didn't notice it for a few days untill I had a passenger and they put down their window and then I could hear it from the passenger side. So... obviously I called again and took back in.. And they shaved down the passenger side rotor.. which now, its coming from both sides and its louder than ever.. It starts at 15mph and escalates from there and then slowly fades away as I get to 15 mph.The dealershop told me that if I brought it back in for the same problem I would have to pay for the service because it wouldn't be under warranty or I would have to call GM.


    So anyways, I was just curious if anyone else had this problem? - I don't hear it when the windows are up and it is not an option for me to not put my windows down! lol..

    I'm having the same issue. My noise is the same noise youre describing but its all the way up to 40mph. Then after that I can't hear it as much bc of the wind. Idk what it is but a technician at my local dealer said maybe the sway bar links? Or something along those lines. Did you ever get it figured out?

    This is not true, you are STILL covered by warranty, take it to another dealer. You took it in so they can fix it, and they didn't fix it, how can this not be covered under any warranty... Seriously?

    I had a repetitive noise on my LS that I tracked down to one of the wheel covers. But it didn't squeal continuously and it wouldn't apply to the cars with alloy wheels. You'd think it would be possible to prove/disprove the brakes by dragging them when it was acting up. If the noise went away you'd know for sure it was the brakes.

    mj1015,
    I understand that this can be frustrating to deal with. I would like to look into this for you. Can you please send me a PM with your contact information, VIN, current mileage and the name of your dealership? If you would like to visit a different dealership please provide me with both of the dealerships please. I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Thank you,
    Stacy Chevrolet Customer Service

    I have the same problem - especially on windy days - the noise is a high-pitched whistle so constant it almost sounds like an electronic beep. It comes from the front dash area, when I get above 65 mph. Anyone have a solution to this?
