First things first I just want to say as a new owner of a 2007 Element SC that I love my Honda! Out of all the box type vehicles out on the road I think the Element is by far the coolest and most rare.

Now my problem is a buffeting wind noise coming from the front end and it only happens at around 70-75 mph. I thought maybe it could be the windshield wipers but I took them off and the problem still persists. Has anyone had this problem? Lmk

Thanks

75 for a box on wheels? You’re pretty sporty eh?

Actually the E goes fairly well at that speed and I don’t have any flapping noises or buffeting but she is not really geared to go that fast and the mileage drops quickly without 6th gear. The wind and road noise obviously picks up. I do have a hood deflector and rear spoiler, so I don’t know how she goes without that.

Check the windshield trim. There’s a history of cracked windshields and when you replace it the trim sometimes comes loose. I ended up using silicone adhesive to tack my trim down to the frame because it was rattling at high(er) speed.
