Right-rear quarter window has a severe problem with wind noise. This is very frustrating and has been reported to Nissan's dealership several times. Nothing has been done to rectify the problem adequately. One dealership told me it was a known problem and nothing can be done. Nonsense. Please help. Thank you!
