Unhappy Wistling noise from the passenger side of the door

I got my new 2013 ES350 about 1.5 month ago. However, I have been very frustrated since I bought that. There is faint wistling noise around the passenger side of the door whenever the vehicle is above 40mph. I brought it to the dealer twice and they said they can't hear. But the noise is there and everyone had rids with me can hear it. This noise makes me crazy and the vehicle is not as quiet as I would expect. Is anyone have any idea or suggestion about this?

As I mentioned previously, I can hear air either coming in on the driver's side (freeway driving) or it's not bouncing off the outside mirror properly. When I visit the dealer for my 5K mile checkup - I am going to have them check it out.

In most of our cars, it ends up being a small gap in the weather stripping where it meets the top of the window, or the outer weather stripping that seals the door to the body. I know the 07-12 LS's had a problem with this, but I haven't seen a new ES with that problem yet. I feel your pain. Those sounds are a PITA to find and cure. Like you said, everybody else can hear it, but when the tech's at the dealership drive it, no chance of them hearing it quite like you did.

Just a couple thoughts for you...

Roll down the window and clean the weather strip real good.
Open the door and make sure the seals are clean as well as fully seated.

I didn't try other same model of cars when I was buying as I never expected any problem from a new car. I tried to clean the window and seal but no lucky. I search the online, and someone mentioned missing air plugs underneath as well as air filter. I am not sure if this could be the problem. Generally, this car is much louder than the 2012 model. I am really unhappy for this.
