    I just purchased a 2015 Tacoma. I noticed a sound that some has described as letting air out of a balloon. I've heard the sound on a YouTube someone posted which is exactly like what I hear inside on very windy days or if a large truck passes by it can occur. It seems like its coming from the vents next to the radio. The posts I've read seem to be few years old. Does anyone else experiencing this. If so what's the fix.

    Thanks

    I have experience with this. BUT I also live up in North Dakota and get super windy days and I have a roof rack. I get a lot of wind/whistling

    I think we all have it. The fix is avoid a cross wind or turn the radio up if you can't.

    It sounds more like the sound a squealing sound. Not really whistling. There is a YouTube that sounds just like it buts it's a few years old.

    My 2011 does it when driving head on into a stiff breeze. And I'm talking really windy. It almost sounds like its wind getting through the weatherstripping. Unfortunately, turning up the radio is the only thing I have seen.

    I've got a 2015 with this issue also. Part of the problem is fixed when I have the recycle button turned on for the AC. Must be the plastic on that flap that hangs open when it isn't on that makes noise that quiets it down when you have recycle on. Other than that, super hard crosswinds get it going occasionally..But definitely not as bad as it is when having recycle off. Still have to crawl under there and see if there's anything I can do to that vent
