Several months ago, I installed these roof rack crossbars on my 2019 Soul.

They made a lot of wind noise starting at 40-45MPH. The wind noise continued until at least 75MPH.

Yesterday, I discovered this website:


Option #6 at the end of the article is the least expensive. I chose to try it. I bought a 48 inch bungee cord from Home Depot and wrapped it around the front crossbar. The 48 inch bungee cord cost approximately three dollars.

I have tested it up to 70MPH, and the wind noise is gone!!!

Thanks for the tip. I learned years ago that twisting a strap a few times prevented it from "singing" in the wind, and I'm guessing this is similar in how it breaks the wind up. Will try it with the crossbars that I'm ordering.
