I received my R1T a few weeks ago. My only issue I have is the wind noise coming from the pillar next to the driver. At low speeds there is no noticeable noise. However a wind noise begins to develop around the driver pillar at 55 mph. At 65-70 mph, the noise is sufficient that it can be heard even with the audio on at a fairly high volume. I have checked the seal around the door and the window and everything looks ok. I do not hear the same level of wind noise in the passenger side. Have other owners had this problem? Is there a fix?

Check out the 16:00 minute mark. Seems like this is a known issue and needed to be replaced.

Hey @GTB welcome to the forum! As @EVolution mentioned it might be a trim piece issue that could need replacing. How long have you had your R1T and when did the issue start?

Yup, I’ve got it too. Went in for service a couple weeks ago and of course they said “it’s normal”…..

I’m beginning to believe Rivian is simply working on the law of averages to determine what is “normal”:

  • 90% of R1T’s have wind noise so it’s “normal”.
  • 99% of owners are terrified to use the tonneau cover so it must be “normal”.
  • 92% of R1T’s have the front end thunk when going over speed bumps so that’s “normal” too.
  • 85% owners have an unreliable phone key so it’s absolutely “normal”.
  • 2% of owners have received all weather floor mats, so of course it’s “normal” that I’ll never ever receive mine.

Obviously, I’m making up the figures and being overly dramatic, but c’mon Rivian, let’s address these problems please.

My “normal” wind noise was fixed today when I put tape over the gap between A-pillar and windshield. So, I suppose my truck will be going back in to service for something they weren’t interested in properly addressing last time :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:. Yes, 3 eye rolls.

So, I got a rock chip and subsequent crack on my windshield, had the windshield replaced by the Rivian Service Center, and now I have wind noise at the passenger a-pillar as well as across the entire top of the windshield.

This wind noise is definitely something Rivian has to get sorted out
