    For a lot of reasons, people tend to have different tolerance levels.

  • I have this too on my 05 Sportage, but only in very strong winds, maybe twice a year where I live. I believe it's either a bad windshield seal or the roof rack.

  • Did you ever determine where the howling originates? My 2006 does this and I can line with it but it nearly makes me jump out of my seat!!!

  • My 99 Kia does the SAME thing! I bought it used a couple years ago and it did not do this. Then somebody randomly broke my drivers side mirror one day when my car was parked. I finally got that fixed, now it's like my entire drivers door is bent out leaving a gap on top. Now the freeway is almost unbearable, and it leaks! It could be that your door may be slightly bent? Does it let in any water?
