Anybody else Have This Problem?

Not really sure when this problem started, but when I go ehh 50+ mph, the windows make a super annoying noise. It's almost like a buzzing sound but when I took it into the stealership they said it's a normal noise from the road. I honestly don't think that's right so I want to know what you guys think.

Yes, unfortunately road noise is an issue with the Balts. I jsut learn to tune the noise out. Probably a bad seal, either door or window.

Eh, not knocking Cobalts or anything but they are just cheep cars. One of the cheapest on the market. Especially to LS and LT models. No offense of course. This is my second cobalt and they have only been out for 4 years. ha.Pluss before that I had a 97 Cavi. (another cheep car) So I have been dealing with this for years. But I don't get much road noise in my Cobalt. When I replaced my whole interior I made sure to fit it in tight and even used foam to deaden sound behind panels to keep rattles to a minimal.

As for as the noise you hear it sounds like a window seal. Check those and make sure they are all fitting tight.

So, to get rid of the noise, remove the inner door panel and use dynamat or some kind of foam to lessen the noise?

its on the outside actually...there's a gap between the mirror and door if u look...u can actaully push on it and u'll see that it moves...wind gets in behind the it and causes the noise

also check the rubber on the door down towards the front of the door (towards the hinges) sometimes the rubber gets weak and brittle there and starts to deteriorate around there causing wind noise as well....80% of the time wind noise is from the front of the door compared to the back of the door

I have had the noise since brand new, just figured it was part of having a cheap car. But now I am getting tired of it, since I am using the car on the road alot.
