    Maybe its just me. This is my first truck. I have owned it for about 1.5 years now. There just seems to be a lot of wind noise even at lower speeds.

    Is this sorta of thing expected in all trucks, or is it because I have an access cab? Or do I need to bring it to the dealer to better get it sealed. My wife has an 07 h3 hummer and that thing is quite, even with high 4x4 all the time. So i am just wonder weither trucks are louder in general or is it the style.
    Thanks for your help

    Trucks generally have more wind noise than cars, no question about it. They have the aerodynamics of a brick. This is rather subjective because what you consider a lot of noise may not be to others so it's hard to say whether you have a problem or not.

    Thanks for you post, I think I am just used to super quite vehicles. So its probably normal.
