    I think it depends upon what you are used to.

    My previous car was very well sealed (VW) and you couldnt hear cars going passed. When I first got the Vectra I though one of the seals had become worn or something.

    But no... i think its just a case of poorer seals and soundproofing.

    Please let us know if you have a solution.

    I believe the pre-facelifts had better soundproofing (eg in the rear wheel arches).

    This is one of the first things i noticed when i got my (first ever) 04 reg vectra C a few months ago. Kept checking the windows but all fully wound up.

    Car before this was a 1997 vectra B that i had for 6 years & was a lot quieter in this respect.

    On the subject of noise, i was suprised to hear the ammount of road noise from the vectra C..... more noisy than my previous vectra B.
