I took a 22 hour road trip in my new Rainforest 2021 Limited and it drove like a dream! I used highway drive assist/Cruise Control with Lane centering almost the entire way and wow what a difference it makes!! Not only did it perform great despite high winds and rain but I didn't feel any driver fatigue after driving 11 hours! The ride was so comfortable. At one rest stop one guy checked out my car and asked me a bunch of questions about it. He was pretty impressed. Love my new ride! This by far has been the most comfortable ride. The only downside was the gas mileage wasn't all that great while it was still in the break in period for a bit and then had to contend with a lot of cross wind. 17 miles per gallon on the way up and 22-23 on the way back with a bit of a tailwind.

While I was in South Dakota, I drove on some gravel roads and a road under construction and noticed that some very fine orange dust has coated just about every surface on the bottoms and tops of my doors on the inside and also inside the back door all the way around. No windows were open and I closed the vents to the outside when I saw that I was driving on these roads. I don't think I have ever had this kind of dust and dirt accumulating on the inside of my doors with any other vehicle I have owned. I figured the Pali would even have tighter door seals given how quiet the car is and how it sounds when the door shuts but apparently it is not all that tight. Anyone else experience this? Is there a fix by Hyundai for this?

was this dust on the outboard side of the seal or inboard ??
Mostly outboard side of the seal (inside the door) I think but in the hatch I was surprised to see how much of that orange dust had accumulated above the taillights (under the door) and up and around the the entire door seal. Seems odd that that much dirt would enter the doors.

I drove on some gravel roads this past weekend and all the doorsills and hatchsill have quite the covering of dust. Hopefully, a good wash will flush that out as well, but if not it will need to be wiped out by hand.
My old 2014 Durango did not have this same issue. So the Palisade must have some different wind current movement to deposit the dust.
