    Here's one I've never noticed before...I stepped outside my running Cruiser today with the A/C blower on max. When I went to reopen the door I felt a strong rush of air coming from the door handle. I walked around the vehicle sure enough all the door handles were venting a noticable amount of air. I then walked back to the vents behind the rear window and lot of air was coming out there as I expected. Is it normal to feel air venting out the door handles when the EVAC (non-recirc) is on full or has a seal worn a bit? I'm just asking because I get a bit of wind noise driving and wondering if it's working its way in there then moving along the window seals.

    Thanks....
