2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I heard something like wind noise in
the front. The salesman, of course,
said no, no. He couldn't hear
anything. This is a luxury car.
The audio system was fabulous. The
salesman was talking. I turned off the
music. I asked him to be quiet. On
surface streets, it was lovely. The
fan was blowing when I took it onto the
freeway. But after I purchased it and
drove it on the freeway all alone and
with everything turned off, there is
DEFINITELY noise. I still can't
pinpoint it or figure out how this can
There are a lot of nice things. It is
a BEAUTIFUL automobile.
"Sound absorbing...sound deadener
materials ...help minimize
noise....Wind noise has been reduced."

it is obvious that meant Toyota had
tried to fix the noise(s). THEY
FAILED. Caution: This vehicle could
adversely affect your hearing.
