Just picked up our new Element from the dealer ( :D ) and noticed that the road noise is more pronouned than we remember from the test drive. Has anyone had the undercoating/soundproofing applied by the dealer, and does it make a big difference?

Most of your road noise is coming from the awful Goodyear Wrangler tires that come on the vehicle. Take it right now to a tire dealer and get them changed for a quieter tire. I didn't realize this until I had too much mileage to get a good trade in allowance on the Wranglers. A lot of dealers will give you good trade in allowance if the tires only have less than 500 miles.

Go here for a full explanation.

It's kind of expensive, which is why it's on my "to do" list and not on my Element today. :lol: I may end up using one of the Dynamat competitors actually.
