Default Loud whistle noise from windshield at speeds over 60mph

I just bought a 2014 SS Agile and when Iím traveling at 60 miles an hour or faster on the freeway there is a loud whistle wind sound from the windshield. Any ideas? I previously had a 2008 agile and never did I hear such a noise.
It almost sounds like thereís a small opening in the window but I assure you all windows are shut tight.
Thank you
Ben

I have the same thing with my 2008 Sprinter. It sounds more like a moaning that a whistle. I think that it is an air leak in the windshield gasket.

There's another thread on this issue (windshield noise). Try going around the perimeter with duct tape to see if the noise goes away. Then, section by section, remove the tape to find the problem area. That'll get you started....

Mine was the "flaps" on the sides of the windshield seal. There is (on mine) a small gap that catches the air, when the wind direction and speed is right. I took a tube of weather seal adhesive and ran it in the small gap. The adhesive dries flexible.
