Wondering on opinions of roof rack cross bars, OEM or aftermarket?

Seems odd to me that the vehicle does not come with them, I've never bought a vehicle with a roof rack that didn't come complete, but at almost $200, and that's cheap for OEM, I can see why they did it. Extra $$!

Anyway looking for opinions, $190 on eBay for OEM or $60 for aftermarket?

I was leaning that way, MOSTLY for the 'easy on easy off' feature
OEM requires tightening a torx bit. Semi permanent installation (Odd).
The amount of time I would have them on and use would be minimal,
(Windstar, Jeep, Subie, etc.) were only on when needed for that
extra .008 MPG :ROFLMAO:

I was sent an offer for watched OEM item from an EBay'er
at $185, still pricey, :unsure:

I took the cross bars off of both my Santa Fe's: easier to wash roof; less wind noise; possibly better gas mileage. If the 2017 has the same p/n as 2015/2016, you are welcome to have one of my OEM sets if you pay for shipping. Message me if you are interested.

I went with Thule and think they fit and look great. Not cheap but quality, relatively low wind noise, lockable and fit tons of basket or ski or bike accessories, etc.
Thule Wingbar Evo Load Bars
Thule 4029 Podium Foot Kit (mounts the bars to our roof rails perfectly)
