Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Entourage 6-cyl

  • 85,000 miles


Driving a 2007 Hyundai Entourage van on the morning of December 30, 2011 we came to a stop for a red light. My foot was still on the brake pedal when two seconds later we were reared ended by another vehicle that was traveling at approximately 45-50 mph. My spouse and I experienced severe whiplash. The driver of the vehicle that crashed into us claimed she never saw our stop lights. After the incident, I discovered there were two recalls for our van (06V356000 & 09V122000) related to intermittent brake light switches. We purchased the Entourage in 2009, but never was told or notified of either recall. Although the other driver was a fault, I believe that she may have been telling the truth about not seeing the brake lights. There are other recalls on the 2007 Hyundai Entourage since then (13V113000 and 13V556000) but we received a notice of either. I plan to submit a separate complaint regarding the other recalls issues. What worries me is that were are not told about or receive recall notices or defective part issues. I'm guessing that NHTSA/ODI would receive more complaints, but people are not aware of the shady non-disclosure practices of dealerships. There are other issues that I haven't submitted, but will talk with you about if you so desire.

Entourage 6-cyl

  • 89,950 miles
What is wrong with my Hyundai is below, however, the Hyundai dealer will not acknowledge since they say my VIN is not included - help. Report receipt date: Apr 15, 2009 NHTSA campaign number: 09V122000 component(s): Service brakes, hydraulic summary: Hyundai is recalling 532,633 my 2006-2007 accent, Entourage, sonata, my 2007 Azera, elantra and Santa Fe, my 2005-2007 tucson and my 2007-2008 veracruz vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A stop lamp switch malfunction may also affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of the park position. It may also cause the electronic stability control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed. Consequence: Any of these malfunctions, alone or in combination, may lead to a crash. Remedy: Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. The recall began on June 29, 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151. Notes: Hyundai recall no. 092. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Entourage. The contact stated the brake lights stopped illuminating.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Entourage. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for a routine repair. The contact then noticed that the external brake lights would illuminate consistently, causing the cruise control to deactivate. The dealer told the contact that they repaired the vehicle under the NHTSA campaign id number: 09V122000 (service brakes, hydraulic:switches:brake light) recall without the contact's consent. The contact called the manufacturer, but denied any assistance with repairs to the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 35,000 and the current mileage was 68,160.

I bought a used 2007 Hyundai Entourage in July 2009. When we test drove it, there was no highway to take it on and it seemed ok on local road. There was a slight shimmy but we were told it was just from it sitting on lot. After purchase, when we took it on the parkway, we noticed a strong vibration in steering wheel at highway speeds. Had front and back brakes and rotors replaced, and tires balanced as well - all non warranty repairs. The problem still exists and is occurring while going down steep hills as well. I am very nervous driving this car and will not take it on the highway not knowing what is wrong with it.
