My car background: I usually keep my cars for ten years. I owned (and loved) my Ford Explorer Sport back in the '90s, but got rid of it when the Firestone tire recall disaster arose. Purchased a new (really safe) Volvo S60 sedan in 2002, absolutely loved it, but always missed having an SUV. Traded the Volvo in on this new Hyundai and have not regretted it for a moment. Yes, ten years have passed since the Volvo buy, but the SFS is much more luxurious and comfortable, and just as solid. I am also getting almost exactly the same MPG as the sedan so happy with that for now.
My one current concern is wind noise at >60 mph, but I know that has already been reported. I special ordered my SFS without a sunroof because I did not want to give up my roof racks (plus a sunroof can only be used for a couple months a year in hot Central FL anyway), so that is not causing the wind noise. It sounds like the windows are not completely shut and that bothers me.
Anyway, probably poor forum thread choice for my first post, but wanted to chime in on the discussion.
Congrats on your purchase of a great car, and welcome to the forum. I do notice a very faint wind noise (probably due to the mirrors as people have stated), but it's so minor that I wouldn't have really noticed it unless I read about it on here. If you have wind noise that's more than faint, maybe you don't have the window seals seated appropriately...I think I heard of someone having that problem on this forum and getting it fixed that way.
