No noise in mine either. Can't be a design flaw. Likely just needs a door or mirror adjustment. Take it to the dealers bodyshop they will figure it out.

this is the well documented torque converter problem. There are a few threads on it on the other forums as well.... im not too impressed either. Hopefully they will figure it out and fix these trucks!

I occasionally have this noise as well, but I only notice it when approaching a tractor-trailer. The buffeting causes a howling from the side mirror. Probably nothing you can do about it.

I listened today on my way home....the 11 is certainly quieter than my prior 08. I remember reading that the 08's had something in the design that created the noise.

Not sure what you are talking about here... Mine is definitely no torque converter issue. It is most definitely wind noise. ...unless this tc issue only happens in cross winds going down the highway...

I also have an 11 and get wind noise on the highway at 65-75mph. I asked the dealer if they had any complaints of wind noise and they told me it was the mirrors????? I am going to try the antenna removal and see if that changes anything.

oh i was referring to a howling/wind noise that many of these trucks are getting...seems to be when holding your speed constant...very noticable... has to do with the torque converter and mds and how they work together...if your issue is truely the wind then you are lucky!!!
