Subtle, but noticed above radio, there is a very high frequency whistle from the passenger side when driving above 70 with wind and 80 with no wind.

Recorded it with iPhone, but it doesn't replay. Too hard to get the mic pointed and drive in traffic.

Anyone else have this?

No and hope it does not develop. Had similar problem on 2005 Forester originating at top of windshield.

Any updates? They still can’t find it and now are calling Subaru for help.

Subaru is having them take other sports out to see if they can replicate the issue. He called and said there maybe another one in the lot doing the same thing on the passenger side. Mine is on the drivers side (we think) he’s confirming with a tech. They said that most likely will be giving me a loaner and taping it off until they find it. I’ll update once I hear more.

Frankly, after treating the rubber seals around the doors, the high pitch whistle settled to nearly nothing. I notice it a bit on occasion, but not consistently.

Treat all your door seals with a good treatment and see if it works for you.

I used the Chemical Guys Silk Shine, that I use for the tires.
