I'm calling them back in the morning, so we'll see.


    csbutler16,
    I would like to apologize for the issues that you are having with the wind noise. I would like you to keep me posted on the progress with your dealer. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,

    Hello all,

    I recently got a chevy cruze 2012 eco and I do love my car, I come from a family born and bred chevy and I have had some issues some resolved some not, I am very very concerned about a few, I had a rattle in driver side door brought it in was fixed for two days now its louder depending on the bumps on the road.

    Also on highway driving I get loud wind sounds from driver side and you can clearly see the weather stripping not put on right like the passenger side door, also a cold start sound that the dealer had no idea what caused it and had to call chevy tac to get help, they replaced belt and tensioner next cold start it was still there I reported these issues in as my car has only 7000 km on it I mean really this is not good.

    The car was clearly not engineered to make these sounds, I am reaching out for help here and I hope chevy helps this new car owner first new car from a long line of chevy cars in our family, I am really depressed and worried every morning I got to get into my car and it shouldnt be like that so times i took it in and its the same thing, should you replace my car since the engine makes huge rattles in cold and chevy tac and the mechanics have no idea whats causing it, the engine sound there was one other person there at my dealer the day i brought mine in with same issue, please do something for me repairs are doing nothing maybe you should contact my dealer after I speak with you, please help me

    I rolled down the back windows in sync for the first time on my drive home after I purchased the 2013 Cruze. That's when I heard the resonator bass note that drove me insane. It has to be something to do with the flat-sided doors!!! I'm loathe to take it to the dealer, because it seems like a few people hear it, but no solution. I have made it a point to open alternating front driver/rear passenger windows to create a crossflow of air to keep it from resonating. I was thinking of getting Painted Side-moulding Appliques to see if it keeps the broad panel of the doors from flapping about.
    Same flapping about noise of the door skin happens when I shut the driver door as well.
    I got the Cruze because it didn't sound like the tin-can of the Nissans and Toyotas, but if anyone has any suggestions or refer me to a specific post (i've been searching around for a while) I'd appreciate.

    A couple of noticed changes in the Cruze, air coming into the vehicle has to be exhausted. Old way was to put the weather stripping on the outside of the door, not the inside and to install an exhaust vent on the inside at the rear door. Much further away from your ear.


    If you put your blower motor in high gear, close the door, engine off, you can feel a blast of air in the upper crack between the front and rear doors. Helps to turn your recir on and use #1 speed to cut down that noise. But in mine that 5/16" space in the driver's upper rear corner really made a loud whistling noise. Getting that replaced made a world of difference.

    In way, wish they stuck with the old way for an exhaust vent, but still the quietest car I have ever owned.

    You are hearing/feeling the air pressure rise and fall inside the car.....nothing to do with the sheet metal.
    Some designs are prone to it (like this one) some seem to never do it regardless of what window or combination of windows are open.
    Worst I've ever experienced is a Corvette with the targa roof removed.....pounds your chest.....so bad that the aftermarket makes a latch extender so you can operate the car with the tailgate open about one inch.....just enouph to let the trapped air pass out of the cabin.

    Nothing to fix.

    Unless some of those reinforcement bars are missing some spot welds in the door. Sheet metal would flex like crazy. Was a recall about missing spot welds in the trunk area. Why not in the doors as well.

    Escalade does this as well but even louder. I believe it was OberMD that said crack the front passenger one just enough and that worked for me at freeway speeds and didn't overpowered the radio. Will also add I had both my back doors realigned with the rear bumper in the 1st 2k miles the edges where the doors opened stuck out from the body so the seal wasn't that great.
