Check for a loose piece of trim or a gap in your windshield seal gasket.

Are you talking about the helicopter type noise if only some of the windows are down? If you are, there is mention of it in the owner's manual. You just have to crack another window and it will subside.

If you have a CAI then you can get a whistle from there, but I'd say most likely is a small gap in the windshield striping. If you haven't noticed any water running in then it's most likely on the bottom. have a good look at the inside and outside and look for a gap. Also, if you can get a compressed air can and have someone spray the windshield and try to feel a breeze on the inside.

Exclamation Whislte noise -It becomes painfully loud at 75mph and up

It gets louder as I accelerator, then even with the throttle off it stays the same . Sounds more like when you have a window not fully closed .

It becomes painfully loud at 75mph and up

I've taped off the sunroof and the top of the windshield and still no change

I had a friend out with me yesterday and he figures it maybe air coming inside the cab somewhere in the center lower windshield area . That could mean anything that is on the firewall, air intake cowl on,the HVAC system or even a pinhole leak at the bottom of the windshield itself

I'm taking it to the dealership today

Went to the dealership today and arranged for an appointment for Thurs. They will do a pressure test to find the problem . I had the service manager out on the road with me today and he could hear the whistle , one good point, he has the same model year as I and so he is very interested .
I will update you all later this week.

It is as you said on the passenger side , the down side rubber trim was lifting at high speed . They reinstalled and glued down test drove at 75 mph and no noise .
I must say the dealership went out of there way I am very satisfied with the outcome
