This is a follow up to my previous post. Today April 11, 2007, My Florida Hyundai replaced the "Junction Box Assembly" pn 91954-4d090.
I was in contact with a Cheyenne WY Kia dealership, and they replaced the junction box,pn is either 91950 4d020 or 91950 4d040 depending on your vin # filter., on a different van.
Sounds like a similar part. I hope this fixes my NO start condition. Thanks for listening

Have over 5000 miles on Entourage Limited with ultimate package, including three separate trips. Ours has a build date of 6/06. We love the van. It has been nearly flawless. The only problem was a defective tire pressure monitor sending unit in one wheel that was repaired under warranty. Occasionally the passenger slider door will not totally close but open and close it again and it is fine. Haven't noticed any unusual wind noise, and the handling has been car-like.
My wife and I, who swore several years ago when we got married that we would never buy a minivan, now both want to drive it (and our other car is no slouch; we just enjoy driving the Entourage).
We added a nav system, back up camera, and IPod connector, which still allows the kids to watch the DVD system and listen to it over the headphones. Gas mileage has been very reasonable. While not up to the mileage on the sticker, that is to be expected due to the old, unrealistic rating guidelines and the new engine which is not fully broken in yet. No noticeable rattles or squeaks. While there is some engine noise on full throttle, it is what has been described as a throaty roar, which is not unpleasant. Very quiet, otherwise, including at highway speeds.
For those who have been told that steering wheel vibration, tire flat spots, and other such problems are part of the normal operation of the vehicle, don't you believe it. That's simply an attempt to get around a problem by dealers and area managers who are too lazy to solve the problem.
I've recommended this vehicle to many others. I hope I'm not jinxing myself, and that the Entourage will continue to operate in the future the same way it has for the first 5000+ miles.

Same here. Love this van. My only issue is the driver side sliding door. Once and a while refuses to close. That aside, well built and fun to drive.

Just filled up the tank again and noticed that I am getting 17mpg with mostly in-town driving. Purchased the Limited in March, love the van. Ride is great, power is there when you need it and like the many features that it has. I am somewhat annoyed that Hyundai did not add the ability to have the locks automatically lock at a certain speed. They seem to be touting safety on their vehicles but missed that detail (I know that other Hyundai vehicles do have that option but not the Entourage). Do not have the steering vibration issue. Did have problems with the auto tailgate but that was fixed today. Have no regrets with this vehicle.

This is my first post here. I purchased an Entourage Limited with Ultimate Package from Superior Hyundai in Cincinnati on 05/04/07. I have one word for it, Brilliant!!
I test drove 12 minivans (Including Mercedes R320 for the heck of it) and bought mine for $20,300 after trade in (2002 Kia Sedona).
I have driven my cousin's $66,000 Escalade ESV (He works for GM) and this is by far the best vehicle I have owned/experienced. My friend saw my van and went to the Hyundai showroom today morning. He almost signed in on an Odyssey on 05/05.

It will be a year since I took delivery of my Entourage SE, 6/26/06. I have been having trouble with the check engine light coming on and off. Had in for inspection and emmissions. They had it for a week. Couldn't pass emissions. After downloading all kinds of programs into computer, they said it was ready. Three days later, the light came on again. Called dealer, they said its a bad ECM module and it is designated to each VIN #. So you just can't swap units. Will take it back this week. So my question is has anyone else had this kind of problem. The dealer, Bowser in Pittsburgh, has been very supportive in trying to solve this problem. But other than that, I still am very pleased this with van.

Yes. I feel your pain. The dealer was very supportive. Unfortunately they are correct. You can not just swap them. Had to wait for new ECM. After replacement all has been fine. Now can someone do something about the price of a gallon of gas. Jeezus.

Yes Yes Yes It is the junction box. Anyone else having the same problem tell the dealer to replace the junction box. Don't wait to hear from a district rep. We waited 2 weeks to get our problem fixed back in December.

I read your nightmare with the Entourage. What finally happened? If the problem is not resolved you should absolutely positively seek redress via the lemon law. It is not too late. I know alot about how this law works and would be happy to give you some advise regarding it. Good luck.

I sure wish I could say that the issue has been resolved... but unfortunately... short of getting a lawyer I am not sure what we can do. I hate driving it... it is not a joy to ride in either as is feels as if some one is braking everytime I take my foot off of the gas. I am counting the days until I can trade it in and take the loss and leave the whole mess behind. Until then... I tell every person that makes a comment on the van exactly what my experience has been. It's a beautiful van...so I get a lot of comments. It's really a shame... I hope my van is an isolated case and I really hope other dealerships stand behind their product and provide customer service. As it stands... mine is a lemon and since the computer says it's fine... the dealership says it is fine.
