Default 2018 Tucson in Chicago

Signed the papers on my new 2018 Tucson yesterday - learning to enjoy all the bells and whistles my trade-in 2009 Ford Escape lacked. Also discovered that CDs are now dinosaurs so I converted all 20 of mine to MP3 format copied onto a single USB flash drive. Who knew - lol - more tech I learned to love now obsoleted. I'm a 69 yr old geezer so I've lived through AM/FM, 8 tracks, cassette tapes and CDs. Don't know if I'll live long enough to deal with the next tech mandatory upgrade - lol

The Tucson is a SWEET! ride, as any new car better be.

I can now report 500+ miles of trouble free driving - inner city and super-highway use. Very smooth handing, cruise control holds within 1 mph, I'm still learning all the gizmos available on-screen, road noise is noticeable but not a deal breaker and the rig takes the lumps and bumps of shabby pavement quite well. Everyone who rides in it, likes it. Good room in back seat.

Welcome from Norcal. I too purchased the 18 Tuscon. My commute is sweet, getting 31 mpg. I do notice the road noise when driving on chip seal.
Maybe different tires would make a difference.
