    Anybody hit 120+ mph and hear wind coming through pano roof seals?

    I hit 120mph the other day in my SX and around there is when I heard what sounded like air trying to come through the pano roof seal.. just a strong 'wind' noise but I didn't feel anything coming through obviously... has anyone experienced this? I'm not worried about it as I won't be going that fast normally lol just curious..

    Ask the dealer to go for a ride and see what they say.

    Mine does it. I think mine actually leak air into the cabin as i can feel the cabin temperature drop down so quickly and i can hear the air coming in too. But i dont really mind about it as the max speed ill be at is around 80 normally on the highway unless i want to go fast or someone challenges me
