2015 Ford F-150: Towing Mirrors Whistle While They Work
by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on December 2, 2015
We're almost at the 30,000-mile mark with our long-term 2015 Ford F-150 and we've learned a lot about the all-aluminum pickup truck. But every time I drive the F-150, I still discover something new.
Maybe I forgot about this little quirk or maybe I never noticed it before (hard to believe after having driven the F-150 for several thousand miles myself), but on a recent windows-down drive in the F-150, I noticed a really loud whistle coming from the passenger-side mirror.
Pretty much whenever the F-150 is going more than 45 mph, the wind passing through the passenger mirror starts to whistle, and as you accelerate, it really begins to howl. It's especially loud and distracting with the passenger window down and the sliding rear window open.
With the window up and some music on, it's about 99 percent drowned out. But once I noticed the sound, I couldn't forget it. It may be time to break out the duct tape.
