Can't stand the helicopter, plus it will blow out the third brakelight dust seal.

As soon as I read the title, I immediately started saying wind buffeting. All you have to do is crack the front right about 1/2 inch, problem goes away. Practically every four door car that I've driven has been this way.

My truck is almost as bad. Have to open the rear slide if any other window is even lowered the tiniest bit.

Was -9 this morning. Maybe I'll be able to roll windows down again... in 3 months.

There's a lot of cars that do this with the rears all the way down. Partially down, no. Raising the rear of the sunroof can sometimes alleviate the problem. Besides, stop smoking while in your car, you won't have this problem and it will have better resale value.

it's socially unacceptable to be ahead of your time.
