Wind Buffeting on 2010 Toyota Camry

We just purchased a 2010 Toyota Camry (our 4th Camry). We have two dogs; one which likes to have the back window open for whisker blowing. When one or both back windows are open, the wind buffeting noise is enough to drive you nuts. The only solution so far is to open one of the front windows just a crack, but I don't always want my front window open. Never had this problem with my other Camrys. I might also add that I am a noise freak; I like things quiet whether it be in my home or in my car.
Any solutions?

That is just the way the car is built, the newer cars with the aerodynamics set the way they are will have a buffering sound if only front or only rear windows are open, like you said the only way to negate that noise is to open the front windows a crack, its a characteristic of the vehicle, many new cars do that.

94 toyota camry vibration in steering column

Check all your engine mounts, including the dog bone at the top front of the motor. One way is to put it in neutral or park, securely chock the wheels, handbrake on, and have someone rev the motor while you look for excessive movement in the motor itself and its mountings.

Also your steering rack mounts while you are at it. This can be done by having someone firmly wind the steering wheel back and forth (ignition key in and on ACC) while you inspect the movement allowed by the rack mounts.

Terrible wind buffeting noise with rear windows-both Buick and dealership insist we pay for the fix as described in #PIT4355B as "helicopter type" noise. Unbelievable. Sounds like tire is falling off the...

Here's the info from GM:

Some customers may comment of a helicopter type noise when a rear window is lowered. This is known as buffeting and it is a low frequency, high volume wind noise that may occur in a moving vehicle with a rear window open.

This is a normal characteristic of this vehicle, but the concern can be minimized by lowering a front door glass approximately 1 to 2 inches. Installation of accessory weather deflectors along the front door glass may also be effective in alleviating the buffeting noise. Seems to me there's nothing to pay for with this info. This is common in alot of vehicles I've dealt with in my career. I'd say if the dealer wanted you to pay for them to tell you that, maybe you should find help somewhere else.
The Enclave is a really nice vehicle. Don't let poor customer service from a dealer discourage you from enjoying your car.

Toyota Camry 2010 Wind Noise ''turbulence''

Unfortunately many cars today are built very aerodynamically and are designed to run down the road with the windows up. The air begins to cavitate near the rear window area and makes a pulsating drumming noise. The only wat to counter act the air cavitation is to open the front window a bit to equalize the pressure wave.
I know this is not what you wanted to here, but to meet the mandatory federal government fuel economy guide lines the auto makers have to make the vehicle "slippery" through the air and having windows rolled down make the car "dirty" through the air stream.
