I get a whistling sound - sounds like it's coming from the front left tire or the left mirror. I figured it was just air whistling past the mirror so I ingored it.

It's definately coming from outside the car.

I was pretty scared first time I heard it as well. Happens at about 100mph for me.

MY CAR DOES THE SAME THING!!!

It never used to... but now if I'm revving 4th gear up, it makes the noise around 100-110 mph. It sounds like a high pitch squeak coming from the driver's side of the dash or the firewall of the motor. Who said we're governed at 130??? I've had my altima doin' a buck forty before! But not in while ever since that noise began occurring. I have a 5 spd, but I doubt that matters for this problem.

noise from left side

I have the same noise on my 2002 S 5-speed. I took it to the dealer they said it was a weak strut and they said the part is on back order.
waiting for about 5 weeks so far.

That must be something different. I'm almost positive this is a wind induced noise - like the wind speed is inducing something to vibrate causing the sqeel.

Not surprised I noticed it sqeaks when moving and stopping at slow speeds. Having the dealer check it out tomorrow, along with a ticking noise on the passenger front column, and gas gage that never reads full, odo that is too fast, and tranny that slips into second (at times). Other than that love the car...

WIND NOISE

The 4th time that I took the little Alty over 100 I got the whistle as well. I have a sunroof deflector and assumed it was wind coming through the little drain slits however if this is happening on Altys without the sunroof I am forced to rethink my position. I think I will get a friend to drive it @100+ and I can get on the hood to see what is making the noise. Anyone have a high speed hood strap? The sound really seems to be coming from above though. Maybe it is the molding or something.
