Just bought a power boost and wanted to see if anyone else has been experiencing this. There’s like a wind fluttering noise coming from the driver side door area. Happens around 65 mph and above. Can’t seem to find anything and it’s annoying.

Hi there! Would you send us a private message with your VIN and dealership name and location? I’d like to look into this concern on my end.

Can you take a picture of the area of the door and frame seals with the door open where you feel the fluttering is coming from? Maybe we can go compare our seals as well.

Feel like it’s coming from these areas.

Also, if you run your hand/fingers against the rubber striping, are there any gaps that maybe the glue did not get affixed or its not sealed against the metal?

There’s a gap her on the door and the stripping isn’t glued. The frame stripping is glued down.

Might be a simple fix or run by the dealer and see if they can glue this down for you (let them know what the problem is). Keep in mind that it might need time to cure/adhere before taking it for a test drive.

Yeah I wanted to see if other people had this similar problem first and was gonna take it in to get it checked.

I experience this also with my brand new Powerboost. Not all the time, but only during highway driving. It's exceptionally annoying.

Did it fix it?

Mine makes a strange noise at unmentionable speeds, right in that same area.

Yes for the most part. Before I would drive with the music down and can hear it pretty consistently. When I leaned my ear next to the door I could hear it pretty Clear. Now with the same thing I can’t hear it consistently. With my ear next to the door I can barely hear the flutter noise.
