Used To LOVE My 2012 Optima - Now I HATE It!

2012 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
2012 Optima looks great; however, on the first day after I bought it, I was driving on freeway (regular freeway speed) and I noticed intermittent wind noise coming in by the top of driver door.
I hope it was something that could be fixed.
Three dealer appointments (time wasted) one which was arranged by Kia Corporate their bottom line was "normal noise."
I owned a Sentra, Accord, Maxima, Camry, and a Pathfinder (which am not counting) and NONE of the cars had this issue.
Also, my MPG average is about 22 (Last tank - no change in driving conditions - I got 19+)... MPG was a major factor when I decided to buy this car.
Exterior looks but front too low.
Intermittent WIND noise when driving.
Seats, especially headrest.
I drive mostly highway and traffic has been good lately but my MPG hasn't improved with mileage as dealer kept telling me.
