I am about 6 foot and I have no problems with wind buffeting on my pagaso Perhaps it is also depending on what helmet you use. I use a Nolan N101 which works fine for me.

What is the lyrics to the song - IT WAS ONLY THE WIND?

I remember as a child on a dark stormy night
I heard the screen door slam and I was overcome with fright
So afraid that someone bad was trying to get in
And momma came to comfort me and said
"It's only the wind, and nothing more
Not the end of the world knockin' at the door
So close your eyes and dream again
Believe me, It's only the wind"
Everytime I've had to face a bitter storm of life
Those words of comfort were my shelter in the night
But tonight I don't believe I'm able to pretend
The storm that you and I are up against is only the wind
I can hear you downstairs and you're just about to leave
There's nothing else that I can do to keep you here with me, no
And now the screen door's slammin' and I'm frightened once again
What I wouldn't give if I could be convinced
It's only the wind, and nothing more
Not the end of the world walking out the door
I wish that I could dream again
Believin' it's only the wind
oh,nothing more, not the end of my world
Walking out the door
I wish that I could dream again
Believin' it's only the wind
Only the wind.

I would suggest a good wind deflector like the Zefferus windscreen or something to get rid of the bogeys of wind noise and buffeting.

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.

Wind Buffeting on 2010 Toyota Camry

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.

I am getting turbulants off my wind screen that vibrate my helmet. could my front wheel be out of balance?

Definitely get your front tire checked. Your vibration could be that your tie just needs a high speed balance job or, and possibly a lot worse your steel belts inside the tire could have gone bad and could result in sudden tire failure.
