    Ok I just bought an 07 crew cab TRD it is very noisy in the cab of the truck noiser than my 04 was, actually it was never noisy. It sound like wind noise when you get above 45. I have taken everything off it bug gaurd window vents etc. still sounds like a wind tunnel. I stuffed towels in the door tried everything is this just something i have to live with and is it a design flaw. I really like the truck but this is very annoying makes me wish i would of kept my 04 or got something else. Is there anyway to add some insulation to help w/ noise.

    wat?
    we've got some posts somewhere else on here that you can search for, but what it came down to was the sealing of the windshield. some people too it back to the dealers and had them listen and the windshield was sreplaced and fixed it...others put some tape along the fronts of their windows and that made it better. i've had mine since november and i havent heard any noise like that. i've got over 16k miles on mine from going up and down i-95 and i havent noticed anything, then again i'm usually always watching a movie, so who knows...lol. others on here have complained about it, so its not a completely new issue.

    Can you describe where the noise seems most noticeable? If it's the windshield you can usually isolate this noise by pushing on the inside of the glass directly behind the rear-view mirror. If this is the case...the windshield can be resealed by Toyota service and is covered under factory warranty. Others have claimed some cab noise is attributed to inherit design of the trapped air between the bed and the cab...if so, not much you can do here. I also read where a member isolated a wind noise coming from the back of the cab underneath the jumpseats. Personally, I have no noise issue with my access cab; however, if you can describe where the noise is most prevalent maybe you might be able to isolate or minimize the noise.

    Can't reall y pin point the noise it's just in the cab and sounds like a wind tunnel. I will try the windshield and go from there thanks for both of your input.

    So far i have had no cabin noise at all. At high speeds with the radio off i can sometimes hear the wind going past the anteana, but thats only noticeable in complete silence and if i'm trying to hear it

    I currently have had my 07 Tacoma DBL Cab long bed(bought new june 28th) In the shop for 2 weeks every other day trying to fix the wind noise in the cab.Today they are putting a bead of silicone between the cab and winshield moulding to try cure the issue.At 75mph with a 20 mph headwind it sounds like you are letting the air out of of squeeling baloon.It is very annoying.

    That's no good. I just took a road trip yesterday and I could have fallen asleep my truck is so quiet. I put the heater on my feet and it was the most quiet comfy truck I have ever been in....mine is an 05.... only thing that bugs me is the bed rattle...but it's really not even that bad.....my buddies fords and chevys squeek and crack and rattle like crazy and mine is almost luxurious....I love my taco!!!
