Despite my overwhelming love of my Model X, I must admit that road noise is much louder than expected. I also own a Lexus RX450h, and even with engine noise, the volume in the cabin is much lower. I was disappointed when I saw that the front doors did not fully wrap around the windows. When the doors are opened and then closed, the windows are down about a half of an inch, and then they go up to create a seal with the car. Unfortunately, on one occasion, when trying to open the window while driving and then subsequently close it, the window was blowing into the car and couldn't make a seal. I had to make an emergency stop to roll the window up. On another occasion, when I closed the door, the window was already up, and caused it to be outside of the seal. I had to open the door again, which retracted the window a half inch, and then reclose it. It seems to me that making a solid door frame around the window would have solved this issue altogether, and could have also eliminated some of the road and wind noise. Living in blustery Iowa, I do a lot of east-west driving, with high north-south winds, and the windows are noticeably sucked in and out, on one occasion causing a visible gap. Anyone else experience these issues?
