Wind Noise 08 Ford Escape.

Recommended Posts

My wife has an 08 Ford Escape, she loves the car but everytime I'm in it I notice a lot of wind noise. She says she doesn't even notice it but there is significantly more in her car than mine. Anyway, is there any aftermarket things I could do to decrease the wind noise??? Never heard of anything or seen anything but you never know I guess.

Exactly, bring it back to the dealer, take them for a ride and point out the noise, if it is considerd abnormal they will fix it. Some vehicle lines just have more road noise then others and there isnt a fix.

That's kind of what I was thinking is that its just the way the car is put together, but didn't know if there was "better" stripping or something that could be done....I guess a trip to the dealer couldn't hurt.

They haven't replaced a door or anything on it by a chance? Probably not being it's an '08..

But I just replaced a door on my '99 Silverado and I have noticed a lot of wind noise.

No its been since we bought it...didn't really notice during the test drive but doing more research it seems to be the biggest complaint about this car...like I said, my wife doesn't seem to mind and it is her car so I was just seeing if we could tighten it up a little bit.

4.W.E. said what is needed to be done.

If it is a design issue, they will have a T.B.S. that will say how to fix it or if it is normal. If it is a repair with your particular vehicle, point it out on the test drive with the advisor or tech. and they will fix it.

Turn up the radio!! laugh

Seriously though, on my 83 Park Ave, it is amazingly quiet. I get in my wifes 2000 Grand Caravan and it seems like I can't hear myself think, I think some are just louder than others.

it might be the seal right next to the window on the back of the door, if you try to push it in and it moves, pull it out a little way and silicone in behind it, then tape it tight to the door till the silicone seats (like 1/2 a day) I had the same problem on my 02 Explorer

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
