I notice wind noise as if the driver side window is not sealing. The dealer performed a TSB addressing this however it did nothing. Evidently a gasket in the rearview mirror needs adjustment or bolstering. Like I said it did nothing and my wife and I think it is actually worse. Anyone with the same experience?

Mine had a bad noise ,drivers side up by the A pillar. Dealer changed gasket. It went away but now I have wind noise right by my ear. Going back to the dealer again馃槱

My '21 has a bit of wind noise at speed but not enough I'm going to worry about it. Sounds like it is coming through the driver's window.

I lease, so 2 years from now the next owner can decide if it is an issue.

I recently bought a 2021 Envision and have noticed the same problem. Nearly every other vehicle has a large plastic covering at the A pillar. However, the Envision has a triangular piece of glass at the A pillar. Today I placed a large towel in that area as I was driving and the wind noise was greatly reduced. Given the current design, it seems the seal at this piece of glass where it borders the front window is insufficient. The wind noise is not terrible, but it is a problem I never experienced on my Volvo and is annoying. The vehicles packs so much value and has much going for it, but this seems a design issue that should have been addressed some time ago.

This is the only real issue I've ever had with my 2021 envision, at least so far. It's not so bad that I can't tune it out, but it's annoying when I notice it.

Sorry to quote myself and respond to something not about the wind noise, but the only other issue I've ever had with my Envision is that the stupid rear buick logo light that you are supposed to be able to "kick" to open the hatch works about 10% of the time :)

I gave up trying to use it. It fails more than it works.

I actually brought my vehicle in to the dealer the other day, and a part was ordered. When it is installed, I will see whether the wind noise issue is addressed.

I have noted that the design on the Envision seems different because at the A pillar there is a triangular piece of glass rather than a plastic covering. Looking at other cars on the road, I would guess 95 percent of vehicles have the plastic covering, but there are some Toyota, Lexus and Subaru models that also have glass rather than plastic. I can't believe the Lexus models have the wind noise I am hearing. I am guessing that the trim around the triangular piece of glass, at least on my Envision, is inadequate. Again, let's see what happens after the dealer tries to address the problem. Also, on another thread, there is a video of someone using silicone in this area on another model to eliminate the wind noise.

Wow, I'm not alone.
1. Wind noise is annoying as hell on the driver side.
2. The buick logo thing to open the tailgate works less than 10% of the time for me.
3. The car play / android auto gets all weird when listening to sirius. It switches to the phone and then won't switch back.

Does Buick have a fix for wind noise yet?

The buick logo underneath the back bumper will not work if you move your leg too fast. Also, if the bottom of the car is dirty and the sensor cannot see the movement it won't work. If I sweep my leg side to side one time slowly (there and back) it tends to open almost every time. I don't have the other two problems. I have had no problems with my 2018.

Yes, Louisiana.

The dealer just replaced under warranty the weather strip at the left front-door quarter glass. This action has certainly reduced wind noise. But there is still some wind noise, and I still would not consider the Envision an especially quiet vehicle compared to European-made luxury vehicles. My problem is likely that I drove two Volvos for over 10 years. The Buick has a different feel, and different strengths and weaknesses.
