Not much Pearl, just wondering how many decibels of sound

Customer Question

Not much Pearl, just wondering how many decibels of sound measurement in my 2014 Diesel Defender 110 wagon at 110 kmh on the highway.
JA: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?
Customer: Engine is the Ford Puma (Duratorque) 2.2 TD, built in Jan 2014 and was last serviced ten days ago, it always gets scheduled services As A Minimum.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing wrong with the engine, I'm wondering what the total decibel sound level is inside the car at 100 kmh.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Nope, if he knows fourbies he'll know the general sounds one hears inside a large fourbie.

There's no real way to know this, other than to measure it with a decibel meter. It will be different depending on the tread of your tires (which will resonate through the subframe, but also just carry through the vehicle) and the road surface.
