    Too bad you're out of warranty, could've gotten it fixed for free with the TSB.

    Yes, it's normal if you didn't get the TSB done. My 07 Tacoma has the same whistle at around 70 mph but it doesn't do it all the time. I just got used to it. Sometimes the whistle lets me know im going to fast on the freeway :D

    Stock for now
    My '13 has had this issue since I got it in feb. I've been procrastinating in taking her in. I've been trying to see if its the mirrors but it might be the windshield. It's minor but having the warranty i might as well take advantage of it after spending 30k on her.

    dealership said it wasnt covered under warrenty anymore.. it was only cover for 3 years or 60000k... so it ended up costing me 200 bucks to get it fixed

    I did a search on "whistle" and this thread came up... Could it be possible to have this issue on '13..... ?

    I'm going to check tonight if the sound changes when I press the windshield....

    Yes...all second gen Tacomas.

    Just take it to the dealership and tell them to do the windshield whistle TSB...it'll take a couple hours...my dealership even sent someone to my house cause they didn't do it in house.

    If its very audible in the cab, its the windshield. I believe the 2013's have the updated grille weatherstripping. Haven't had a problem with mine, and most I've seen have 2012's.

    Had the whistle, had the tsb done, still have the whistle. I noticed I could squeeze the door and the pillar together and it helped, so I rolled the window down and "massaged" the window frame in and it's better now, but every once in a while...

    Adding the rubber tubing inside the hood gasket fixed the whistle sound on my 2012. It's weird that it can be that or the windshield.
