Best value in vans

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

I bought my Entourage in 2007 after comparing it to the Dodge, Chrysler, Honda, and Toyota offerings. I had a 1990 Dodge minivan for 19 years and it still had more zip, and better handling than the Dodge and Chrysler vans. The Entourage has great road feel, plenty of zip, was nicely appointed and was $7,000 cheaper than other comparable models. The seat felt better than those in other vans and that was important because I have back problems and must do long drives. The only problems I have had in five years is a buzz in the AM reception that I attribute to had tuning, because FM comes in clear. The other problem is the passenger grab bar that came out when a passenger exited. I replaced the two small metal screws and have not had a problem since. Resale value is a problem for those who trade every few years. I keep my vehicles for ten to fifteen years and when I get ready to buy another Hyundai will be at the top of the list.




Third van, sad it is

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

I bought my Hyundai brand new May 2007. Also owned Dodge and Pontiac vans, comparable to both. Just turned 66,000 miles. Commute 35 miles per day, can cruise easily at 70+ mph, consistent 21+ MPG, will sometimes get to 80 mph+ without realizing it. Plenty of room for big guy-I am 6'2", 300 lbs+. No kids, just 2 dogs, but wife and I love using the van to go tent camping and fishing with them. Outlets very handy. Never used DVD system, but sound system so good it must be used at less than 30% volume. Lack of parts availability for warranty work in Alaska frustrating. Only complaints: Remote door operation, fixed. TPMS monitoring system, not yet fixed. Driver's power seat a little rocky




Never again

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

We have an 2007 Entourage and wish we could get rid of it, the A/C clunks when you first start the engine, something a $28,000.00 new van should not do. After replacing the A/C twice, Hyundai finally said that was normal in all Entourage's, so live with it, and we found that when the Rep from Hyundai in California makes a decision, that's as far as it goes. Great company policy, if I were to lose my job, they would take it back, but have a serious problem with their product and it's tough! I have a 2006 KIA(sister company) Sorento with 17,000 more miles on it then the Entourage, and the KIA rides, drives and sounds better then the Hyundai. Did I mention it sounds like a tank when cold.




Great vehicle

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

I've owned the vehicle for 2 1/2 years & have over 64,000 miles; the only problem I ever had was the sliding doors getting jammed; we just had them repaired (nationwide problem we were told) never had any other problems; dealership has great service; they remember me by name when I go in for service (oil changes regularly); the only thing I don't care for is the resale value; there is none; depreciates too quickly




Disappointed...

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

I bought my 2007 Entourage in Spring of 2007. Automatic sliding doors have not worked properly since I bought it. Every time I bring it in for service I am told that nothing is wrong with the doors. Only other problem is the gas mileage averages about 17 MPG - not what I had expected. I want to get rid of it so bad - but the value has dropped so much - i can't get rid of it!!!




Do not buy a hyundai

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

We got our Entourage when it first came out cause we love hyundai cars, and needed a bigger family vehicle. We loved this vehicle until we started having major issues with it. We have already had to have the entire electrical system of the van replaced after only having it 11/2 yrs and it needs to be replaced again. Our power doors are a nightmare. They close then open right back up. When they actually do close the track keeps going even after the door is closed. When we pull on the door handles to open the doors they don't open. With in the last 9 months our van has been in the shop over 8 times, for the same things over and over again.Now i understand why you need the warranty they offer.



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.
