I have a 2017 Maxima SR. On a consitent basis at higher speeds but only when there is a cross wind also, there is a buffeting or vibration that seems to start at the bottom of the car and go up the door post. I noticed it more on the passenger side but it now seems to be on the driver side as well.

    This is with windows closed I presume? Seems like it probably has something to do with the door seals. Since you say under very specific conditions (higher speed and a cross wind) you might simply be running into a resonant frequency issue. Given that it's only a 2017, I can't imagine that the gaskets have dried out/shrunk to a point where you have large gaps in the seal. I guess it could be, but seems unlikely. Do the gaps around the door panels look normal/consistent?
