Entourage 6-cyl Diesel

  • miles


We purchased '07 Hyundai Entourage in 2009. We had several minor problems that year, which we overlooked as result of normal maintenance. However, we now think otherwise as the electrical system seems to be faulty! issues: Replaced battery three times within 1 year. Remote entry stopped working for sliding doors, they lock/unlock but do not open/close. Sliding door on driver's side doesn't work via switch inside the door or ceiling console. At times our doors slide open while driving! from beginning, a large quantity of watery like substance leaking from engine area. Mechanic tightened a gasket during an oil change which temporarily lightened the problem...but it continues to this day. Every mechanic has mentioned this leak but cannot determine origin. Engine light came on 2 years ago, we were told to replace electronic throttle control ($1500!). however, light turns off for extended periods of time (loose wire" poor battery? faulty computer"), so we're hesitant to order that part...feel like the computer is faulty. Couple of week's ago the air bag light came on and will not turn off, even though we have not been in a collision. Driver's turn signal burns out within three weeks of replacement, it's been this way since day one. A few days ago the driver's side door wasn't responding to the keyless remote...it remained locked even as all other doors unlocked...curious to see if this becomes a recurring problem. Additionally, the latch on the driver's side sliding door broke off several months ago, followed by the passenger sliding door latch one month ago, with regular use. Not happy with this vehicle! we got a lemon, we believe the electrical system/computer is faulty, and we feel it should be the manufacturer's responsibility to repair...this is the first step that we're taking towards a complaint. Any feedback/assistance welcomed.

Other drivers flash their lites at me or blows their horn' especially cars that are following me.

Entourage 6-cyl

  • 99,500 miles


Driving home last night my ESC off/on light came on. I didn't know what this meant, but kept driving. Upon arrival at home my brake lights would not come off. The only thing that would make them go off is disconnecting the battery cable. Upon further test the brake lights stay on while driving as well so the individual behind me would not be able to tell whether or not I was about to stop. I called the dealer and the 800 number in regards to a recall that I saw on the NHTSA website that may be related to the issue and they say my vehicle is not impacted by this recall and that I need to take it in to the dealer. The issue seems amazingly similar to the 2009 recall.

I have been experiencing several electrical issues with the van. The van has been to the dealership several times for motor issues with the sliding side doors. About 5 months after purchasing the van we had issues with the side doors popping open while driving 70mph down the expressway. This was an ongoing problem. Was told by the dealership that the issue was fixed. Upon the last visit to the dealership for a sliding side door that does not function properly I was told that the motor needs to be replaced despite the several complaints I have had about the sliding doors. The cost was over $150 to replace the motor for the door. Current issue is the brake lights do not illuminate at all. I called dealership after learning of recall online and they stated this was VIN specific and no recall was issue on my van and I would have to pay the cost. After reading several reports of the same issue with the brake lights the issue does not seem to be VIN specific.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Entourage. The contact stated that the brake lights illuminated constantly without depressing the brake pedal but failed to illuminate when the brake pedal was depressed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnosis. The technician stated the brake light switch would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. There was a recall under NHTSA campaign id number: 06V356000 (electrical system) that could have been related to the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated the VIN was not included. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Entourage. The contact stated that the vehicle had numerous electrical failures. The contact stated that the interior light, the power sliding doors, and the power locks all failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnosis and was informed that there was an electrical short. The vehicle was repaired. The failures recurred. The air bag light began to illuminate and the contact was afraid that it too was an electrical issue and felt very unsafe driving the vehicle. The vehicle was due to be diagnosed at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was 114 and the current mileage was 111,000. Updated 01/05/13*ljupdated 2/6/2013

2010 A/C not working properly. In 2011, again A/C not properly working. Both times took into dealership and they said it just takes the system a little longer to get cold. Then in 2011, 2 more times the same problem but module fan control circuit and wiring was melted. Took it to auto tech since the warranty had expired for the repairs. Auto tech said this could have been a fire possibility and a safety issue. Updated 08/11/12 updated 09/18/2012

I have called Hyundai and asked about recalls, they say there are none. But my brake lights continue to stay on and my cel is on and it shows a bad computer. I feel the computer should be replaced by dealer not at my expense.

Electrical problems, with my 2007 Hyundai Entourage, day one the battery had to be replaced, then at 39,000 plus miles, the power door on the left side quit working, it was bad about re-opening after being shut. Then when it was returned another problem was created, the first time my wife locked the doors the door lock notification horn was very faint.they reordered a new horn, no change. The ex-service manager said that's the way it should sound. My wife and I and children, family members all said it sounded strange. We didn't make a big deal out of a horn sound.then the battery again went bad, had to be replaced. At 76,000 plus miles both power doors quit working, I asked for a quote, and to keep all replaced parts. The quote was given, the parts weren't given to me. I was told they were to be sent back as a warrenty. Two power door motors and a module, all went bad at one time. When these doors quit working, no child can open them from the inside. Three -four days later after this repair a light comes on saying ESC off and engine light comes on. I researched recalls on google and it said there was a recall on the adjustable brake petal and switch. The dealership and Hyundai of usa both deny that it was a recall. I am afraid this van is dangerous at this time.

Power sliding door and other electrical problems on a 2007 Hyundai Entourage. Multiple replaced parts to include battery (after 24 months of use), horns, power window switch, ac/fan clutch, blown engine oil seal, tensioner, ECM with relay, brake light switch with brake lights, etc. No help or concern from dealership other than "we have never seen this issue before" or "all of these parts are under warranty, what more do you want use to do".

We purchased our 2007 Hyundai Entourage new in July '07. Within 2 months we began having problems with the electric sliding doors on both sides. Sometimes the doors do not close all the way, or close and reopen. Sometimes the doors won't open with any method, keyfob, buttons, or manual. The doors sometimes make a sound like there is grit in the track. We have taken this to the dealership multiple times and even showed them video of it happening. Since they can't reproduce it there has been no work done to fix it. We also have intermittent battery drain. The battery has been dead 5 times for no apparent reason. The passenger side mirror will often not adjust unless it is moved to the bottom outside corner first and then it can be adjusted. The memory for the seats/mirrors are often lost. To me these all indicate a problem with the electronics in this vehicle. Dealership has not been able to find anything to fix. We also have experienced a shimmy at highway speeds. Replaced the tires and had them road balanced to remove the worst of the shimmy. Independent garage did this and said the tires and the rims are fine. It's been close to 3 years and we are still experiencing all of these issues.

My 2007 Entourage limited has several quality deficiency issues and recurring maintenance issues. The rear sliding doors (both) have been worked on several times, yet they continue to malfunction, I.e come undone/re-open, not fully latch, and consistently beep as a notice of failure. This is where my babies sit, both of them. The dvd screen has been replaced because it quit functioning properly. The van shimmies or rattles at speed around 70 mph. It causes the center console to shake vigorously. The wheels were balanced on a special wheel balancer but this only reduced the problem. The tire pressure monitoring system has had malfunctions multiple times. There is a whine from the steering column when the wheel is turned, the alternator is creating a whine over the stereo system intermittently(really annoying), the side mirrors have both had problems with the reverse/angle function where the mirrors' motor fails to return the mirror to its user preset setting when transmission is placed out of reverse(drivers side) or fails to tilt the specified degree in reverse(passenger side). The roof leaked when the van was completely shut and had to be resealed by a specialist to correct an existing deficiency, the seal around the glass for the sunroof is degrading and cracking. The sliding rear door on the drivers side has a crimped window channel seal. This shop also stated that they "had not seen one of these [Entourage] vans with so many problems". the door handles and rear high mount stop light had to be replaced due to the packing/shipping poly wrap ruining the chrome and plastic lens. The gasket for the high mount stop light had to be replaced later due to workmanship or material quality. The windshield cracked/failed (1/2" chunk of the windshield) when my wife adjusted the rear view mirror. The idler pulley has been replaced because the bearing failed. Stripping around the sliding doors are fading already and yellowing. More not enough space.

Brand new 2007 Kia sedona ex. Various electrical components would fail to work sporadically. The issue started almost immediately after having bought the car. After not driving car for three days, car would not start. Would jump the car and it would hold the charge for two days, then die. Then it would hold the charge for one day and die. Took the car into Hyundai on 7/14 but they could not find any problem. Also complained about the electrical panel in the roof having a leak. Hyundai ordered a part but it's been over three weeks and it hasn't arrived.

We bought a new Hyundai Entourage in 07 the front tire will not hold air. The key less remote entry has been replaced and is still not working. The van was in a accident involving a pole. The van was going about 35 slide on ice and smashed the hole front end of the van. The airbags didn't deploy but the light for the airbags is on. Possibly indicating they did deploy but didn't. we think this could be all electrical. Someone for Hyundai motor America will be out to look at the van in 45 days. We would like the van totaled. Due to not feeling safe with the airbags.

We have an 07 Entourage limited with a number of electrical problems, left side sliding door wouldn't open with the remote, dealer repaired with a new door sensor, now the dealer is keeping it over night because of a problem with the same door when closing and then reopening as soon as it latches, put a new latch on and still having problems so they are keeping it over night, radio and seat looses memory but it's sporadic so no way for the dealership to find the problem, rear hatch closed then reopened but hasn't recently.the trans. Has a shutter when shifting at times but have not reported at this time due to being sporadic. The dealership has been great.but this limited Entourage has some electrical problems that could become serious. Msrp was $33,620 when we bought it in July 06 now selling for about $29000 the first problems started surfacing about a month after buying it now Jan. 07 still having problems.
