That “one window down noise” is horrible.
I always have my windows down. I like the breeze. I like fresh air. I hate car smell. You can hear better what’s going on (situational awareness for safety). Smell the honeysuckle in the springtime.
I like the windows up on the highway, that can be a little too loud on a long trip.
I VERY MUCH miss the little vent wing window that old cars had. I’m my lifetime, I had an old Silverado that had them and my VW. Those little things put a lot of cool air on you. The Silverado also had foot vents. If you remember those? You pulled the knob and a flap opened in the firewall.
It was nice breathing all that fresh air instead of poisoning your body with a mixture of fire retardant, glue fumes, foam and plastic off-gassing god only knows what.
