Hyundai Entourage Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Hyundai Entourage
Hyundai Entourage Problems
If you experience difficulty getting your Entourage transmission out of the Park position, a redesigned gearshift lever is available.
If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Hyundai has an improved tensioner to correct this problem.
Due to several possible engine-related problems, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. If this occurs, reprogramming the computer that controls the engine should fix the problem.

Hyundai Entourage Recalls
Vehicles first sold or currently registered in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because one or both front lower control arms may break due to excess corrosion. The lower control arm is part of the front suspension. If one were to break loss of vehicle control could occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front lower control arms and will rustproof or replace them as necessary.
The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting many vehicle systems including the brake lights, transmission shift interlock, electronic stability control, and the cruise control. Failure of any of these systems could increase risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch to correct these issues. This recall is to begin on June 29, 2009. The Hyundai recall number is 092.
The stop light switch wiring harness may be out of position and chafe as a result, leading to a failure of vehicle brake lights as well as possibly causing an engine stalling and starting problem. Dealers will inspect and secure the wiring harness for chafing and repair it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
Hyundai Entourage Reviews
thumping noises under the front end of the car. Dealer replaced bushing and said it was fixed......NOT!!!!. Said some other seal or something was on order....Very unhappy with dealer and the car itself. What does it mean ...bumper to bumper ????? O7 is not very old to have "knocking problem " under the front of the car.
Had this for about two months now and for the warrenty and the price I paid you can not beat it so far. The warrenty is 5 years bumper to bumper and now includes the cloth interior for stains and the paint job on the outside for and color problems for items like leaves being left on the vehicle for a long time.
