I wasn't sure where this belonged and I didn't see other threads, so I posted it here. I have the same problem with my new-to-me 2005 OBXT that I had with my '99 Forester. When driving through a strong cross wind on the interstate (usually I70 or I80 across the plains), my leeward windows bow out slightly from the crosswind vacuum sucking them out ever so slightly. This happens with either side, depending on which direction I'm driving and which direction the wind is coming from. In all other situations, the windows seal just fine. However, when it does happen, it's pretty awful. It creates a pretty loud wind noise/disturbance in the cabin that let's a little moisture in if it's raining, interferes with music, hampers conversation, and is generally very annoying. Since Subarus don't have frame rails to prevent this from happening, I'm not sure how to fix it.

Any ideas or previous experience with this?
