How Many V-6 Owners have a Whistle

As I have been trying to get my V-6 whistle noise fixed. I have been coming across only V-6 owners with the same problem. The big question also is do you have the cross bars on top? If so make sure they are in the 1 & 4 position. Then check to see if you still have the noise. If so contact your dealer. I have five times. No luck on getting it fixed so far. Maybe a V6 defect.

Double check to make sure your cross bars aren't on backwards. The bars are labeled on top and are supposed to face a certain direction. Maybe the dealer mounted them backwards, the bars say which way is forward but maybe somebody made a mistake.

Yes I have even informed dealers about the cross bars. Their own sales staff don't know. Anyhow I have an attorney working with me to resolve my noise issue. Still like my Commander, just want the noise to stop. AHAHAHAHAHAH

The whistle sounds like it comes from the front windshield area. It does not do it every time. Notice it more with cross winds. I believe it is a high pitched vibration. All those mentioning cross bars I do not have them.

When I crack my passenger window a few inches I get a pretty loud whistle, but I have a hemi. Might just be the horrible aerodynamics of our square body.
