Ok, until today I had not experienced this (Because I had not tried this configuration yet), but tell me if you have. At 50-55 mph, I lowered the rear windows, and the most god-awful buffeting happened that hurt my ears. It is a pulsing sensation that leaves my ears rigning for a few seconds. When I lower all 4 windows the nasty pulse goes away. It's almost like I need the rear gate window to crank down a bit to release pressure in the cabin if that makes any sense.

yeah, this is normal. most every car I have had does this and it is very weird when you experience it for the first time. Just make sure to crack the front passenger window a few inches and then open up the rear windows.

I guess It just never happened to me before, the last 4 door we owned was a 2004 Honda Civic, and for the life of me I cannot remember if we ever lowered the rear windows without the fronts first, ;-)

HA HA HA HA You experienced the pocket helicopter too. I hate when that happens. You have to have two opposite windows open at same time. Thats why i am happy we put the window visors on. You can crack two windows out not as much wind noise as without them.

Your Honda didn't do this because Honda is designed by God himself. ;)

But yeah, every car I've owned has done this. I usually open one front & the opposing rear anyway, to get that cross ventilation thing happening.

The patient says, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Then don't do that!"

One of Henny Youngman's many doctor jokes.
