Default Wind buffering

Unlike my old XJ, in the new KL with the drivers side window down, I experience wind buffering at speeds above 40 mph. I've tried adjusting the side view mirror and that helped some but I'm wondering if anyone has tried rain deflectors to alleviate this issue?

That's every vehicle on earth just about . Have to open both sides if you're going to open one or you'll have that issue .

Didn't have that issue on my old XJ. Has to be a way to divert that air flow other then opening the passenger side window

My Grand Cherokee WJ had Auto VentShield (AVS) acrylic wind deflectors on all four windows when I bought it... helps a lot with wind buffeting... you can get the ones that stick on (like mine has) or the ones that install in-channel... but they DO help... thinking about getting a set for my Grand Cherokee WK2.

Thank you. I dislike the idea of spending $100 for Weathertech and not having them do what I need. Think I might just go with the front set as I rarely have passengers

yup. had thought about that too.But if they work, then I'll invest in the rear set, if they dont then I have only lost $60 and not $100
