#441 of 459 Hyundai Entourage tire problems.
Dec 16, 2008 (2:20 pm)
I purchased a 2007 Hyundai Entourage the first year they came out. After approx. 1 year I went to have my vehicle inspected and was told that all 4 tires were worn down to the wear bar. I have rotated the tires. I only had 19,000 miles on the tires. The tires were Michelins. I brought the vehicle back to the Hyundai Dealer and they told me that the tires were wearing even. I asked them what could be done about this. After arguing with the dealer they told me that they would give me 1 tire but I would have to purchase 3. I did purchase 3 tires. I told the dealer that I wanted a tire that will give me more than 19,000 miles. They gave me Bridgestone tires with a 60,000 miles warranty. At this point approx. 9 months later my tires are now worn to where I have to purchase 4 more. The hyundai Dealer has told me it is Bridgestones problem and Bridgestone has told me it is Hyundai's problem and they have to honor it and make good on the deal. I want to know if anyone has had this problem with their Entourage. I am starting to think there is a problem with my vehicle that these tires are wearing so quickly. Please Help.

Hi, I purchased my 2007 Entourage in November of 2006, and I just replaced the Michilins for the first time at 22,000, they were NOT down to the wear strip, but they were getting close. It is winter here in Buffalo NY and I wanted a full tread so I got the tires prematurly. they are Kumho KR 21's I think. And they balanced perfectly, they got rid of that vibration i had at 73mph. Ahh! everything is good. Cost $131 each including tax and everything.

I also bought the 07 in June of 06. I just replaced the Michelin's with the same Kumho KR21. I got 35,000 out of the Michelin's. I only rotated them once. All 4 wore pretty evenly. I really didn't like the Michelin's. Good traction in all but snow. I put the Kumho's on because of what I read at Tire Rack. $543.00 for 4 installed with a 80,000 mile warranty.

The dealer sold you the tires, so demand a replacement set and tell them to go after Bridgestone for reimbursement. 2 sets of worn tires on a 2 year old van is ridiculous. Clearly it's not the tires.
#445 of 459 brakes lock up while driving

On 3 occasions over 4 months the brakes on my 2007 Entourage have locked up while driving. The dealer has tried three fixes; the last one has not failed in three months. Has anyone experienced this problem? If so, what is the fix that works?
#446 of 459 2009 or future Entourage?

I read where the 2009 Kia Sedona will have a navigation option... but do not see this for the Entourage? Is this true?
Also, does anyone know if Hyundai (or Kia) will be updating their minivans in the future (interior, exterior, etc.). Would definitely like them to move from the greenish middle dash lights to the blue like in the other Hyundai's

spike, I had very similar problem, but i had a very noticeable symptom in the drive, I have posts under the "steering vibration" thread.
We had 17 tires on our van. The bottom line with our van is that the front end and the back end alignment did not match. and it could NOT be repaired. (think bent frame) So the tires wore incorrectly. There is nothing wrong with the tires, or the tire company would have had a recall. Yes you could get a bad tire, but not 2 sets. We found our problem by going to an independent tire store and getting the front and rear end alignment data.

Lemonade has a point. My Michelins lasted 60,000 miles

Sure you're not hitting the remote lock button while it's in your pocket?
I do that unintentionally a few times.
