I have a 2012 Jetta SE w/Convenience and Sunroof and I'm experiencing the same high-pitched whistle. The same exact thing: only happens above 40mph or so and does not happen when it rains. HELP!
We are considering purchasing a new 2012 Sport Wagon, and noticed the wind noise during the test drive. Is it that common, and no remedy? It is a deal breaker for us, otherwise seem happy with the car.
Unfortunately the noise doesnt seem to have any fix. Poor quality control is about the best I can give you. There is a possibility that the noise you are hearing may in fact be coming from the side view mirror.
I've lived with it for a year now and it's still as annoying as it was on day one. Take another test ride or maybe consider something else as VW can't fix this issue.
It has been over a year since I purchased the car and the wind noise problem is still not fixed. Volkswagen and their dealer have walked away from the problem and at this point it seems there is no fix to this defect. My suggestion to everyone is not to purchase this model car. The only thing that Volkswagen and its dealer will say is that the noise "falls within specifications".
Thanks for the response. Dealer gave use the wagon for the weekend, and the noise drove us nuts. When returning the keys to the service department, guy in front was back for his forth time for wind noise fix, and he was ballistic. We will keep our current vehicle until we a car we are happy with.
well good new's is it's not all the jetta wagen's I have a week old 2012 and no noise what so ever on our's Hope they find a fix
Volks wagen Jetta is the worst car ever! Do not by the mew models
I bought won october 2011
Car has wind noise worse then a car from the 80s
My car is a 2012
Whenever you use your winshield fluid the smell leaks right into the inside. You can probably get high off it
The car is soo nasic for the highline model
Digital gas reader is the worst of them all. Who puts a digital gas reader
My reader showed 20km left and in one second went to zero and now im stuck in the middle of the road waiting for my wife to bring deisel. Typing this with soo much anger towards vw for stripping down their new models from a car that once had a good reputation
Literally going to torch my car!
Never another vw. Took it to the dealership and complained about the window and they have nothing to say. Hope this company goes right to the ground. Will be laughing once it does!
so your second post and your Crying about your car Maybe you should do us all a favor and sell it and go buy a prius maybe then you would be happy Suck it up CupCake and get the car fixed . or maybe your a Troll
I once ran into this problem with another make of vehicle. I vowed to never buy another car without first test driving a demo.
We have a 2011 jetta tdi and have had the same noise.....long story short.....we found it to be the driver side mirror making the noise.......while driving on the highway open the driver window and put your hand on the top of the outside mirror...when we did this the noise went away...it seems to be coming from the top edge of the outside mirror.......we went though all the same crap.......a week in the shop. replace the door seals...window seals...have the dealership run into our car and damage it etc etc......
Lets be clear here... the sportwagen and sedan are two totally different vehicles and share no parts except the powertrain. The 2011 jetta sedan had a problem with windnoise in two places.... one a foam block fixed in the window seal and the other is an updated mirror housing to eliminate that whistle you hear at about 50 mph. The first is a recall the second is a TSB only for 2011.

I just got 2013 Jetta sport station wagon. I have exactly the same problem as in the first post in this thread as of 04-27-2011 08:41 AM about jetta 2011 model. There is an irritating wind noise that starts at about 50 miles per hour. Same story - dealer tried to replace rubber strip in the front driver side door, adjust doors etc. They tried to help, but then they probably realized that there is not much they can do since this seems to be a design/engineering/ VM manufacturing problem so they blamed it on aerodynamics of the car. Anyway, VM knows about that problem, if that started to happen at least in 2011 from the original post, but they've chosen not to do anything about it or even disclose to people that there is a problem - and we still have it in 2013. I would certainly not get this car if I knew about this problem. At the moment I'll proceed with contacting VM directly.
