It's been several months since I had my Carnival serviced for the wind noise issue. I wanted to wait and see if it was really fixed. I'm happy to say it's 90% better than before. The dealer replaced three different weather strips on the door and added some foam backing to the weather stripping that sits against the driver side window. See the pictures below.

Adding foam backing to this weather strip (so it seats more firmly against the window).

This has mostly fixed the wind noise issue where it sounds like your window is slightly cracked. It's not 100% gone, but way better. Hope this helps.

We have had our 2022 Carnival SX Prestige for one year. Horribly loud and vibration. Been to Fort Wayne, IN dealership many times and nothing resolved. Want to really enjoy the car but having trouble doing so and get sick to think what I paid for it only to get no help from the dealership.

Did you get any impression from the dealer that this was a Kia-documented solution or just something they figured out on their own?

Tried a different dealer? Called Kia Customer Service?
