Question 2012 Suzuki Jimny (new spec)

Love my Suzuki Jimny but since I bought it brand new out the box
the right drivers window makes a whistling noise when wind blows or high speeds.
Window seals been replaced but still terrible whistling noise.
anyone else experience this ?

Get yourself a roll of wide masking tape and start putting tape over any seam or uneaven surface on and around that door.
One place at a time though not all at once.
Then go for a test drive after each application.
When you find that you've covered the seam that causes a change in the pitch in the sound or makes it go away you've found the source of the problem.
It could be poor door alignment or a weather strip that is sticking out a bit or a seam that needs to be filled. It may not be the window at all.

sounds like great advice thanks. will give it a try and let you know. have also been told of a seal test device that you place in vehicle. should it make a noise then there is an air leak. have you heard of this device before? not sure if it works

It sounds like you already know there is a leak...
You just have to pinpoint it now to get it corrected.
I like the tape idea for your own piece of mind, but if the vehicle is only 4 months old it should be the dealership that jumps through the hoops to get it fixed.
