Dash 'engine light' activated, check by dealer revealed transmission issue. Trany solenoid and wire harness need replacement. Dealer or Hyundai motor would not include wire harness in warranty though it was stated it shorted and caused malfunction. The complete cost of repairs should be covered under 10 yr / 100000 warranty. Note: Refer NHTSA electrical harness recall, #06V356000. This covered 07 vehicles, which is when my vehicle was built. Note: Hyundai motors case # [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The door handle just fell off of the door on the left side of the car. The automatic sliding door has given us many problems, we have taken it to get it fixed and it still does not slide properly. When my husband tried to open the door the handle just fell off. Now what do we do.

Entourage 6-cyl

  • 74,442 miles
While driving on interstate 40 in memphis, tn, approximately 2:30 pm on March 07, 2014, the ESC indicator light became illuminated on the dash-board. My attempts to extinguish the illuminated ESC light numerous times failed to reset or extinguished the ESC light. Upon arriving home about 3:30 pm, I parked my 2008 Hyundai Entourage, turned-off the engine and restarted the engine. The illuminated indicator ESC light did not inappropriately illuminate. I inspected the exterior lights only to learn all of the rear lights were still illuminated with the engine turned-off and in park. My efforts to turn-off the rear lights failed. I was instructed to disconnect the positive battery terminal and bring my 2008 Hyundai Entourage in for inspection and repairs at a Hyundai dealership. After I reconnected the battery cable on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, the ESC indicator light reappeared (became illuminated) again. After another Hyundai motor America dealership inspected and repaired my 2008 Hyundai Entourage, it was learned that the previous Hyundai dealership performing the "recall and repair" mechanical work, "jerry-rigged" (to fix an object (usually mechanical) to a working condition in a haphazard way. Also known as doing a macgyver on it), or repaired my electronic stability control (ESC) system in a manner inconsistent or contrary to Hyundai motor America manufacturer specifications. The Hyundai dealership intentionally and purposefully used parts that would fail and put my safety in question. In view of how I was treated by professional staff at that dealership during my seven (7) hour ordeal, I believe the dealership's action was an act of purposeful sabotage and criminal negligence, designed to put my personal safety in question.
