2013 Access Cab Interior Cab Noise And Side Mirror Alignment

I just purchased a 2013 access cab and right away on the way home from the dealership I notice a whirling noise inside the cab at various speeds. I drove the truck for about a week and then returned to the dealer. They said that there were a couple of reports on this issue and stated that the side mirrors were to blame. They said with a slight design change on the mirrors on the 2012-13 models, more issues with this were reported. How to verify if this is the issue, fold back both side mirrors and test drive. Be careful when doing this test because you will not be able to see without those mirrors during your test drive. If the noise is gone, then you know you have the same issue as I. The mirrors are adjustable within the door, however, I will be letting the dealer make the adjustments or replace the mirrors. Besides, its brand new with a 5 year warranty.

You need your windshield resealed. Someone on the assembly line has been sleeping.

When you have a toned ear like mine, yes you can.

Windshield is intact and sealed correctly. Thanks for your info though.

I have a 2012, and had the windshield re-sealed after having some noise at speeds above 70 and 20-30 mph cross winds (I do live in KS). I still have some slight noise if the wind angle is just right. Not sure what the culprit is at this point. The dealership did admit that there have been multiple cases on 2012's, guess thats why they re-sealed the front glass right away after I presented a recording of the noise from my iphone.
