I'm thinking about getting the window air deflectors for my 05 RAV4.
I notice at speeds above 65 if the windows are cracked open you get a squling noise.
You have to open the windows about 2" to quiet them down.
Will it be better or worse with the deflectors ?

I sure haven't had that experience. I love mine, they have dramatically reduced the wind noise when travelling with the windows open just a bit. I like to have the windows open a crack all the time when driving but couldn't stand the air noise. But the noise was cured by having the side window visors installed. I didn't notice any increase in noise without the windows open either after they were installed. I wonder if there are types that fit better than others or that are shaped differently that would cause different results..? Maybe it's a factor of the exact way or position in which they are installed..?

I haven't really noticed...

..and i'm sorry for posting a reply before driving tomorrow to take a look at the noise level. I haven't noticed a louder noise at all. I open the windows every day to let in some air and get the breeze going and it hasn't been a problem. The new in-channel are definitely great!....it has a cleaner look, a little more durable considering how it attaches and give you some ventilation while parked in sunny spaces. Pretty cheap if you buy 'em from ebay sellers.

I have the EGR In Channel Vent Visor which are the kind that fits under the window (not the ones that use tape on top of the window edge).
They are quieter with the window down but don't expect the noise to
be silent. There is some noise when you have the window down but compared without it helps reducing noise but not elimating it.
