Unhappy How Quiet Inside Your Civic?

guys,

i drove a friends civic (about a year old) & when i compare the sound inside this civic compared to mine (2+ years old) this new civic is quiet, really sounds new, i mean in the highway mine seems like having a wind leaking inside of of some kind, whooshing / humming type

is it typical the the older your vic the noisier it gets? (disregard the exhaust & intakes, im concern about how air tight you are compared to the brand new)

is it the rubber-seal thingy on your doors that sould be replaced?

ohiojosh78 can only hope to improve
If you want your car quieter just take up your carpet and lay down a layer of dynamat or spray some rubberized sound deadener. Either or really help around the rear wheelwell because there is none there from the factory.

What kind of tires you have really makes a difference with road noise, too.

You do know they put more sound-deadening material in the Civic for 03 and up right?

04 Civics are a lot quieter than 01s-03s cuz they refined the car by stuffing more sound dampening. Also the car has a lil softer touched ive noticed. such as the door handle and roof handles dont snap back as hard and the suspension is not as hard. Also the RATTLES are gone!!!

My 01 is pretty quiet when going down the road. Of course I have 10 cans of expanding foam, 200 sq ft of FatMat, and an additional layer of carpet padding in the floor. It's still not as dead as I want it though.

01 is very quiet

our 98 sedan has a wind whistle noise somewhere that I can't isolate. I've tried everything I can think of and have NO CLUE what it is. I've thought of taking it to a dealer but I have no idea how they would be able to find it.

01 isnt that bad at all. It holds sound quite well. When I am bumping my system with the door shut and windows up, it holds all the bass in really well, but if I crack a window, or open a door, you will here it for a good distance. It's also nice and quiet other than the exhaust when I am driving. Freeways on windy days suck.

I have no wind noise in the cabin, very little road noise from my 17's, but the moonroof rattles as well as a loose heat shield from my exhaust that i have to tighten. Other than that, it's all good

My 02 is very quiet. So quiet, that the tiny squeak in the sunroof gets annoying. That's about it. One day I'll get fed up and pull the headliner and fix that little squeak.
For those with dash noises, try wrapping some electrical tape around the glovebox catch. I did, that's where my dash noise actually came from. So far, those were the only 2 rattles in the car. I only hear the sunroof squeak with the radio off. It's actually one of the clips that holds up the headliner, but it's a pain to get to.

/\/\it rarely happens, but it'll start real quiet, then i feel it in the shifter, then its like a tin can banging around under the car. It'll do it at idle to til i rev it a lil' then it'll go away. It hasn't done it in a few days and i know exactly where its coming from , just haven't had the time to get under the car and patch it up. Also it rattles a little when you slam the passenger side door.
