Air/wind noise on 2018 civic

Anyone else noticing excessive wind noise on the New civics,I have a sport turbo model and have had the door seal changed by the dealer but I can still hear it.I have driven hondas for about 15 years now,and never had a problem before.I spoke to the dealer and they are saying all their demonstrators are doing it too.It is a pity because it is spoiling the enjoyment of an otherwise good car.

OP doesn't mention at what speed.

I seem to recall both the 8G and 9G initially having this issue around the drivers door mirror area, soon rectified by Honda with modified seals.

None on my 4 door. I've had it up to its limit on the autobahn. Definitely no more at those speeds than other cars at 200+kph.

It was a whistling noise on the wing mirrors. The issue was air been pushed through the gap where the mirror sits into the car. New Seals or silicon would sort it

The discussion is about a 10G car here so likely don't need new seals yet. Might be one missing though.

Just a thought, it's not the dreaded aircon whistle is it? Or is it deffo coming from the door area?

Thanks

Thanks to all of you for replying.
Just to clarify the problem,the car is only 6 months old,the noise is definitely coming from the door area it usually starts at about 30 mph,the local dealer has tried changing the seals on the drivers door,and adjusting some of the trims,but this has not made any difference.
I just wanted to know if anyone else had noticed it.
Maybe Iím just being too fussy in my old age but I expected better build quality than this as none of the other hondas I have owned in the past gave me any issues at all.

I get it too from the door area and I have the same model as yours except mine is the Sport Plus. It doesn't happen all the time it kind of depends from which direction the wind is blowing and how strong it is at the time I'm driving. I have noticed wind noise from the driver door mirror as well. Being the Sport Plus, I get wind noise from the sunroof as well!

I have also noticed wind noise from the door. I would say that it starts at 100km/hour (60 mph). It is not much, but as Steve24 wrote, I did not expect that from a new car. I have noticed in my 4 door sedan that the alignment of the door is not perfect. The top tip of the door should theoretically be 2 mm closer to the car body. Maybe they are in a hurry in Turkey when assembling. The frame around the window is also very solid. Normally, it used to be possible to bend the window frame by force, but not this one! Of course, if you try to bend, the window should be down.

Stevie24, I got some ideas from this discussion. Someone mentioned a recall in 8th and 9th generation. Could it be something equal? We hear wind noise in the upper rear corner of the door. For that reason I tried to put some electric insulation tape over the gap in that corner on the outside, the gap between the black plastic cover and the painted upper part of the door. I feel like it helped a little. If it really helps, it is easy to replace the tape by silicone.

Yep, I think I have a smilar issue

Wind noise somewhere left front (being from Belgium, LHD of course)

It depends on the road surface also

Very annoying and once you are paying attention to it .....

(2018 Civic 1.5i Sport+)

Was thinking on insulation in the weel well ?
Could it be the mirror ?
Door seals?

Why does wind noise depend on road surface. My 10G does seem to suffer quite a bit of 'tyre roar', quite a bit more than the 10G 1.6 I had as a loaner a few days ago.
Narrower, higher profile tyres on the 1.6? 215/50 rather than 235/45 on mine. Both on 17" rims?

A very smooth non-concrete surface gives less noise than concrete one

That's why it might be linked to tire size/tire brand AND too few insulation of the wheel well ?

Just my 2 cents ....

Yes, I understand that, but wind noise is roughly proportional to speed, not to the road surface. That produces other annoying noise that 'harmonise' with wind noise to make a 'noisy' car.

I agree that it is proportional to speed but the 'increase' of noise is higher on rough concrete than on smooth non-concrete

OK. You win. It must be true.
Suspect the best idea to find the source of the wind noise is to temporarily tape over the various bodywork 'crack' until you find the source. And when you have done, please let us know from where it was coming.
