I was wondering if there was any wind noise when the sunroof is open, and what would the benifits of having the black visor thing installed?

of course there is wind noise when you open the sunroof and the visor should limit it some.

I've actually been very pleasantly surprised by how low the level of buffeting has been. Our Expedition was much worse.

YA KNOW I REALLY LIKE THAT MESH SHADE... I WAS SO SURPRISED BY THE WAY IT BLOCKS OUT THE SUN ESPECIALLY IN THE BACK SEAT. THAT WAS AWESOME. WONDER HOW MUCH IT COST TO HAVE THOSE REPLACED, YA KNOW, IN CASE SOMEONE ACCIDENTALLY HAS AN ACCIDENT AND IT SHOULD GET RIPPED... THEY SEEMED REALLY STURDY THO.

ItsaBuick? Every Enclave I've seen has a Deflector on it. It pops up when the Sunroof is open and folds down whem it's closed. It makes a big difference in that it cuts down on the noise and also the turbulence inside the Vehicle. When buying a Vehicle with Sunroof, one of the first thing I check is to see if it has a deflector. I have an STS with Sunroof and at 80 MPH with Sunroof open, it's not too loud nor is there very much wind inside the car. I didn't know if you meant the exterior Visor or the one like I just described. Anyway, I love Sunroofs summer and winter, mostly in the pop-up position.

the visor that you purchase separately, right? if so it sounds like rocketman is saying that it comes w/one that pops up when open and folds down when closed. if that is so, its great, i may not need to purchase the outside sunroof visor.... ty rocketman for the info.

I think it is noisy in is standard form compared to others I have owned. It is probably due to the shape of the car.

you might want the deflector.

itsabuick, do you think it could be that the car is just extremely quiet and therefore making the noise from the sunroof more noticeable.

maybe. I'm comparing to a 93 Camry V6, 90 BMW 750IL, 04 Mazda RX8.

The Deflector that I was talking about is standard with the Enclave Sunroof. With the Sunroof open, look on top at the front opening. There's a deflector sticking up slightly above the opening. When you close the Sunroof, the Deflector will fold down and the glass closes over it.
