1st Generation Volvo XC60 Excessive Wind Noise

The Volvo XC60 is a compact luxury crossover sport utility vehicle, perfect for the consumer looking for the style of a luxury car with a more affordable price tag. These vehicle are highly economical and one of the safest sport utilities on the road today. They come standard with many safety monitoring systems and luxury features, while delivering a comfortable ride. As worry-free as most Volvo XC60’s are, they are not without a few issues.

One of the most repeatedly cited problems with the Volvo XC60 concerns excessive wind noise in the cabin of the vehicle. Volvo owners report that while traveling at high speeds a loud whistling or buffeting noise can be heard around the windows and door seals. Upon inspection, no issues are visibly apparent and no water leaks around the windshield or doors.

Most often, a whistling sound is the result of a door or window seal improperly installed or a leak in the seal. However, on the Volvo XC60 the most likely culprit is the trim around the windscreen. This can be easily adjusted by any professional mechanic, so long as they take care not to damage the seal. If damaged, it will cause a water leak around the windshield and degrade the seal’s integrity. This is another important reason to not undertake this repair on your own, and leave it to a professional.
