2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Weather Strip Hiss

November 7, 2013

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

Our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI has developed an air leak. No, not from a tire or intake, it's coming from the passenger-side rear window or door.

The hissing becomes evident on the highway, just above 60 mph. It's pretty noticeable from the driver's seat. It's not a huge deal, though after only 9,000 miles, it does seem a bit premature. Let's hope the dealer can address this the next time we need to take it in.
