Q: Fluttering noise when accelerating

asked by on

I hear a fluttering noise when accelerating/driving.

The noise you are hearing is most likely a broken door or window seal that is letting air into the passenger compartment, causing the fluttering you are describing. I would suggest having a certified mechanic run a noise inspection to pinpoint the location of the sound and suggest any necessary repairs.
