    All, have noticed this more and more recently on my 2019 tundra- when driving in windy conditions on the highway (75-90 mph) there is a strong cold draft that comes in through the back of my truck somewhere. I also notice it going through the car wash. Anyone else have the same experience? Thoughts? Take it to the dealership?

    There are 1 or 2 vents back there to release air when you close the doors and to keep humidity down. Normal.

    If your CM has a center console (bucket seats), it will have HVAC outlets in the rear of the console for rear seat passengers.

    When you're in the car wash, and you feel the draft, reach back and feel the outlets for flow. If the switch is turned to "On", "Acc?" or "Run", the blower will provide low volume outside air flow to the dash and probably the console outlets, even when the HVAC is off. This time of year, outside air is going to be cold. A couple of recent threads have said that putting the HVAC into recirculation mode fixes that, but it doesn't bother me.

    Yep, re-circulation mode should take care of that. I feel air in my Crewmax even if the knob is off. More noticeable in winter.
