Default Wind noise from most windows

This car is 4 months old (2004) and starting to hear wind noise from both front windows where glass meets window channel (at about the 45 degree angle). Also wind noise at both back windows where glass slides up against rear pillar. Dealer is able to confirm leaks and just chuckles as says " that'* the way they are designed and all Bonnevilles and Gran Prixs are this way.....Sorry".
Very disappointed with his lack of professionalism. Don't buy from Ardmore, OK.
Anybody else in this situation?

Actually, the first thing I noticed while driving at speed was how quiet the interior was. I haven't noticed it getting any worse, either.

Very true, total lack of professionalism.

nope I have a 2000 and she'* very quiet. did you buy it brand new or new used with
some miles on her. If it had some miles maybe it was in an accident and was'nt
repaired properly.

no, my 2000 is so noisy it'* unbearable. It'* even worse than my old GTP which I thought was really loud. That is a totally unprofessional though, however, when I took mine back when I had bought it they told me the solution was to "turn up the radio a little louder."

I have an '02 with 36k and it is Q-U-I-E-T inside compared to the Plymouth Voyager I traded in. I wouldn't have bought this car if it had that awful wind noise problem.
