Has anyone experienced this issue? I've only had my car for about 3 weeks and this was something that my wife and I noticed. The faster the car would go the louder this whistle would get. I had the car in today for some service and had this taken care of. I was just curious how many other people may have been affected by this. Now it's time to get the car up to 70-80mph to make sure the whistle is gone. ;)

I have the whistle over 60mph but haven't gotten it fixed yet. Printed the TSB. I have the sunroof open most of the time in the summer, so it's only noticable when the car is sealed tight. :)

Yeah before we just turned the radio volume up and that took care of the noise. ;)

I am trying to think now, when I notice a whistle sound I usually get it from the right side, but maybe that is just my head screwing with me and it really is coming from the left.

Just to clarify, by whistle you mean the wind right?
It's a high pitched whistle, on the same level as when you roll a window up,(when your traveling at a high rate of speed), just before it closes you might hear this. When the car's cabin pressure is changing. Some people are really sensitive to it, but if you've lost some of that higher end hearing, you might not notice it.

[My dad had a Chevy cop car that had this whistle they could never fix (I think it was a window seal leak issue) and thus he like the song "see the USA, in your shi**y Chevrolet" or sometimes "shimmy Chevrolet" for the loose front end. He hated that car.]

I can happily report that the high pitched whistle is gone. Great success!

Glad to hear that this takes care of the whistle noise. I haven't minded it too much, but it bugs my wife. I'm starting a small list of items to get the dealer to take care of anyway, might as well add this one to the list.

That's a known (all be it small number) issue. Have the dealer replace the peddle assembly. The bushings on some cars have been known to slip out of place. It won't throw any codes. It's strictly mechanical.

As I've mentioned else where, these techs have a tendency to rely too heavily on codes to the point of not fixing an issue.
