WASHINGTON — Hyundai is recalling 15,500 2007-'08 Hyundai Entourage minivans in the U.S. because of a corrosion problem in cold-weather states, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The front lower control arms may fracture due to corrosion resulting from exposure to road salt and water, said NHTSA.

"A fractured control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem.

The recall affects Entourages built from February 16, 2006 through June 30, 2008 and sold in or currently registered in cold-weather states. They include Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

There have been no injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the recall, according to Jim Trainor, a Hyundai spokesman.

Hyundai dealers will either replace the lower control arms or rustproof them. The recall is expected to begin in December. Owners can contact Hyundai at (800) 633-5151.

The minivans use the same control arms as the 2006-'12 Kia Sedona, which was also recalled in a separate action.

Edmunds says: If you live in a cold-weather state and own the 2007-'08 Hyundai Entourage, you'll want to have it checked out with your dealer next month.
