Driver Side Door Window

This is crazy. I am on a long road trip with my < 300 miles Telluride. We are driving probably 80 mph on the interstate (legal in MT), I roll down the driver window to feel the temperature outside. Fine enough. I roll up the window but to my astonishment, the window won't seal - the wind pressure is causing the window to bow out and not align with the grove in the door seal. Then the safety feature that reverses the closing as if an arm or something is in the way (as it should) rolls the window back down. The window will not close at all. Glad it wasn't raining. I literally had to slow down to 40 mph to get the window to close. Nothing I have ever experienced before in any vehicle. Design problem? I honestly don't know how a dealer can fix that issue. Nothing is bent and the window works fine if you are not at highway speeds. Yikes.

I experienced similar problem with the passenger side window while driving about 80mph on I-70 in Utah. It looked like wind pressure pushed the window seal, so there was a slight gap between the seal and window, that made whistle. The window was closed though. I slowed down only a couple of miles and retried closing, then it closed completely.
It might be a design flaw. Just do not open windows on high speed driving like 80mph.

Mine, too. Kia is going to have to address this. If you don’t want to slow down, crack a widow on the other side and roll up the offending window first or roll them both up at the same time.

I have the same issue with wind causing the driver and passenger side window to whistle at speeds greater than 60 mph. Currently having this addressed at Kia Dealership. Got a call earlier today from dealership saying that that an exact make an model S has same wind/whistling issue. Their mechanics have initially chalked this up as being an aerodynamic issue that is common across (at least 2) vehicles. I have requested that they call Kia and look into the problem to see if there is a fix.
