I was driving back from FLA on Sunday and had a pretty consistent crosswind. I had the howling for over an hour.

I get the same wind noise on the Highway. The Sport Mirrors create a low howl when you drive at high speeds usually above 70. They are slightly angled on the front and this may be the cause.

I have a 2011 RAM 1500 Longhorn Crew. At highway speeds I get a wind noise similar to blowing over a beer bottle have full. Seems to be most pronounced with cross winds

Mine is as quiet as can be until you open 1 window, then it's game over.
I have to crack at least 1 other window to not have the noise. i think that is a major effup on Dodge's part. I've never had such a wicked sound on any vehicle before.

The same noise I have been hearing. I even had my wife drive my truck (which never happens) so i could listen for the noise.

I posted here before that I had the same noise... had my windshield side seals replaced under warranty and I don't notice the sound near as much now. I did a little when they first installed them, but after a couple weeks (I guess the seals formed to the windshield over time). I still hear the sound, but it is not near as loud and does not happen except in stiff crosswinds as previously mentioned. If you have the noise try getting the seals replaced, won't cost you anything but a little time in the shop, and can't hurt anything. Just my 2 cents.

I have the mirror howl too, more or less right where I'd want to drive on the highway, 68-72 mph. 2011 Sport. Any luck getting dealers to replace the mirror maybe??
