Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

Where to start… I don’t normally write to forums, however I feel obligated to warn people of this vehicle. LEMON LEMON LEMON I first owned a 2004 Sonata… amazing car, loved it, no problems whatsoever. So when we had our second child, I decided to invest (bad choice of words) in something larger. Test drove all the typical minivans, Dodge, Toyota, Honda but my bias of Hyundai led me to chose the Entourage. What a mistake. Here’s a list of problems since I’ve owned it: 1. Had to replace the DVD player within a couple weeks of purchase 2. Had to fix broken arm rest 3. Had to replace rotors twice and entire breaks once, not related to driving but defects 4. The key ignition had to be replaced, had to get towed for this one. Happened at a movie threatre, we had a baby sitter at home, had to get a rental for 4 days until it was fixed… they didn’t cover the rental. 5. There has been ongoing battery / wiring (unknown) issues. It is currently in the garage for a 3rd battery replacement. Approx every year the battery dies completely and won’t hold a charge anymore. Last years fix was a computer s/w upgrade… yeah right. Today they are saying it is a module recall for the side doors that they think is the problem… yeah right… and whatever happened to informing customers of recalls. I have a 2nd small car, 97 Toyota Tercel with 200,000 KM that I trust more than this vehicle. 6. I also have an ongoing headlight issue. When I break or when the gears shift, there is a noticeable dimming (1 or 2 sec) of the headlights. I think it is related to problem number 5. 7. Yes the powered side doors are great when or if they work. Someone told me when I first bought the van, having everything powered is just more to go wrong… how true. I live in Canada, any amount of snow or frost; the side doors are impossible to open. This vehicle was to be our long-term family car. I wish this info was available before I bought. Avoid this vehicle or suffer the consequences. LEMON LEMON LEMON

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

I bought this vehicle two weeks after it was on the market. Major issues have been doors jamming and mine are not automatic. I have had problems with both sides not closing. When my seats are folded into the floor the car squeaks loudly...annoying. Brakes are definitely an issue and my brake servicer blames the calipers. I have had a couple sensors fail that literally stopped my vehicle from moving. Fuel economy is not so hot but I did see that on the sticker upfront. This van does handle very nicely and everyone who has driven it is impressed and surprised. I have five kids and it is very roomy.




Should have painted it yellow

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

The van looks good and drives nice but don't let that fool you! The fuel economy is no were near what we were told. The brakes are a disaster and needed replacing after only 35000 km rotors and all. The idler failed after 50000 km. Had to be towed for a computer failure. the latches on the side doors fail. if you open the driver's door in the rain, you will not be able to close the gas cap door. There are problems with the wiring in the back door. there are always light on the dash that shouldn't be on , last being a problem with the air bags!! If you don't live next to the dealer ship or want to keep the van past it's warranty, don't buy it!




Good van for what you

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

I've owned this van for over a year now, and have not had any problems at all with it. I purchased it used with 20k miles, and I've since put on 10k, mostly on the highway. The van is large and spacious, similar to Odyssey, Sienna and Caravan (I've driven all of these). The performance is very good considering it's size, and you have to remember that it's a minivan, not a sports car. I think the build quality is good, not quite up to Sienna or Odyssey levels, but on par with the Caravan. The 5 year 60k mile warranty is a reassuring factor, but I have not yet had to take advantage of it. Also, I think gas mileage is pretty good, I get about 26 mpg on the highway, with a moderate load.




Wish i didn't buy it!

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

We paid for the extended warranty and glad that we did! Brakes started squealing within the first six months, tires did not last as long as they should have, battery died after about 50000 miles. They have had to change the air compressor, the fuel sensor, and a few other parts. We have had to get it towed twice.




Luv the van hate the

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Entourage GLS 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

I couldn't wait to buy my first brand new van. Have had this van for one and a half years and have replaced the timing chain 3 times, and it needs a fourth. Have had problems with the tpms also. The dealership has been extremely helpful. But how many times can it go in for the same part?



Full 2007 Hyundai Entourage Review

What's New for 2007

Hyundai rolls out its very first minivan with the 2007 Hyundai Entourage. The vehicle comes dressed for maximum value, with a lengthy standard features list and a low price tag.

Introduction

In recent years, Hyundai has distinguished itself as a manufacturer that gives you more for less, delivering value-priced vehicles with abundant safety and luxury features, and generous warranties. This tradition continues with the 2007 Hyundai Entourage. It's the marque's first-ever minivan, and like its platform-mate, the Kia Sedona, offers a pleasant mix of comfort, convenience and safety at a price tag that's significantly lower than that of most other minivans.

However, the Entourage's affordable price doesn't mean you'll be giving up interior room or feature content. Measuring 202 inches from nose to tail, it's just as big as its competitors. And Hyundai's latest offers all the amenities most have come to expect in a modern minivan -- side airbags, stability control and a fold-flat third-row seat are all present and accounted for. Three trims are available, but you don't need to go crazy with the options to enjoy a generous standard features list. The base GLS offers remote keyless entry, a 60/40 third-row bench that drops into the floor, removable second-row captain's chairs, front-seat side airbags, head curtain airbags for all three rows, tri-zone air-conditioning, a six-speaker CD stereo, stability control, 16-inch wheels and 13 cupholders. The 2007 Hyundai Entourage is powered by a capable 3.8-liter V6 good for 250 horsepower. Handling falls short of being athletic, but there's enough power and capability here to satisfy the needs of most buyers.

Overall, the Entourage doesn't offer quite as much refinement as the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. It's not class-leading in its handling, either, but it's a competent performer in most respects, delivering all a modern minivan should for hundreds, and in some cases, thousands less than the segment's big-name stars. If you're hoping to maximize your buying dollar with a minivan that's capable yet affordably priced, the 2007 Hyundai Entourage (or its twin, the Kia Sedona) is your best choice.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Hyundai Entourage seven-passenger minivan comes in three well-equipped trims. The base GLS offers 16-inch wheels, removable second-row captain's chairs, a 60/40 split-folding third-row seat with in-floor storage, a six-way manual-adjustable driver seat, tri-zone air-conditioning, a six-speaker CD stereo, cruise control, full power accessories and keyless entry. The midgrade Entourage SE trim adds 17-inch alloys, dual power-sliding rear doors, a power tailgate, heated mirrors, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel (with audio controls), wood or metal accents and an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat.

The top-of-the-line Entourage Limited trim kicks things up a notch with heated leather seats and an electroluminescent instrument cluster. In addition, this trim gives you access to a sunroof, as well as the Ultimate Package, which bundles an upgraded 13-speaker surround-sound audio system and a rear DVD entertainment system, with a four-way power front-passenger seat, power-adjustable pedals and an integrated memory system that governs the driver seat, mirrors and pedals. The upgraded audio and entertainment systems can also be purchased without these extras on SE and Limited models. Heated seats are included when you order them on the SE.

Powertrains and Performance

The front-wheel-drive Hyundai Entourage minivan is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 that generates 242 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway.

Safety

Standard safety features on all 2007 Hyundai Entourages include antilock brakes with brake assist; stability and traction control; side curtain airbags for all three rows; front-seat side airbags; a tire-pressure monitoring system and active front-seat headrests. Rear parking sensors and adjustable pedals are available on the Limited as part of the Ultimate Package, but we wish Hyundai would offer them to GLS and SE buyers as well. Safety ratings on the Hyundai Entourage are impressive, as it scored a perfect five-star rating in NHTSA crash tests for its protection of occupants in front- and side-impact collisions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Entourage its coveted Gold Award, as the minivan earned a top rating of "Good" for its crash protection in frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests, and for the effectiveness of its head restraints in rear impacts.

Interior Design and Special Features

The Entourage's cabin offers ample versatility for a minivan. All three rows offer ample legroom, and fore/aft-adjustable second-row chairs permit you to reallocate space as needed. However, headroom is tight, and we suspect that's the reason the third-row bench is mounted so low to the floor. The seat is fine for children, but adults will feel the squeeze. The third-row seats easily fold into the floor and the second-row seats are removable, though doing so requires some effort since each seat weighs more than 75 pounds. Switchgear and interior materials are adequate, but don't quite match the refinement of pricier vans like the Odyssey. Also, a navigation system is noticeably absent from the options list, as is a rear backup camera. The Entourage's rear DVD player is a stand-alone device, and can't be controlled from the driver seat; the driver will have to pull over in order to change the programming. Cargo capacity tops out at 141.5 cubic feet, a couple cubes shy of what the Dodge Grand Caravan, Odyssey and Sienna offer.

Driving Impressions

Boasting impressive acceleration, the Entourage's capable V6 is never at a loss for power in both city and highway driving. Shifts are mostly smooth and well-timed, though the transmission can occasionally be a bit slow to respond. Those who travel in this Hyundai will experience a ride that's both comfortable and quiet; however, handling isn't especially athletic. The 2007 Hyundai Entourage responds predictably around corners, but it has less precise steering (and more body roll) than you'd get from its class-leading competition.
