#2 of 80 Steering wheel vibration
Aug 06, 2006 (2:10 pm)
Anybody out there with an Entourage having the steering wheel vibration/shake problems at 73-75 mph like some of the owners of 2006 Sedonas? Apparently more problems with LXs, but also some with EXs. Since vehicles are so similar, I want to see if reported problems with Sedona carry over to the Entourage.

Thankfully no. I have the 07 SE and push it right up to 100 with no issues. This is a sports car in minivan clothing...

My new Entourage has been at Planet Hyundai since Mon..it s Saturday...they replaced tires...Still shimmies...They think that it s a bad AXLE......How much can go wrong with a BRAND NEW VEHICLE???????????
They want to replace axle with Factory Rep from Hyundai s axle ..he only has 1000 miles on his axle...HELLO I wanted a NEW CAR...not a new car with used parts on it....I will pray that they will take this back...I am 8 months pregnant..THIS is the last thing I need to worry about

Same shimmey problem identified on the Sedona forums. Most were fixed with rebalanced of wheels/tires, but some had problems with a defective brake switch. On those were tires weren't the issue, the replacement of hte brake switch solved the problem. Worth asking your service advisor to look into, if they still haven't solved it...

I just bought a new Entourage last week. It has a couple of issues. First the remote for the automatic side doors seems to work intermittently. The dealer started to take the car apart to try and figure it out, but when I objected to not getting my car back for the weekend, they called corporate who told them to simply give me a new remote because that one was probably defective. So they have to order me one.
My other problem is a vibration that starts around 70 mph. By 80 mph, the steering wheel is practically shaking. They balanced the wheels and said they fixed it, but it actually feels worse than before they worked on it. I noticed a few other people who've mentioned a similar problem. Have you guys been able to get your problem resolved? If so, what needed to be done to fix it?
So I will be taking my new minivan back to the dealer for the second time in 2 weeks to try and get these problems fixed.

Not meaning to insult, but when operating those doors, several things have to be in place in order for them to open, I know, because I was slow to learn (even tho i consider myself a fast learner and am mechanically and technically competent...I think..my opinion) anyway.
1.) The Transmission must be in PARK for the doors to OPEN, (i cant tell you how many times my rear passengers felt locked in)but, they will actually close in any gear, AND
2.) The power door lock must be in the UNLOCKED position.
3.) I'm not sure what the child lock levers do, I dont
4.) and dont forget the Power switch in the ceiling consol, should be depessed in to be ON, i think.
Wheel shimmy, I don't know, but they have rebalanced all four of my michelins, and it is much better, but there is still a shake or a harmonic signal around 75. I hope someone can figure this out....I'll bet its something weird like bad wheel castings, off center wheel studs, unbalanced rotors or off center rotors, off spec axle, or who knows what. It just ticks me off with as many posts about it on this site and the Kia site and other sites, that no one has found the cause. Lots of things seem to be ruled out (it happens on three different brands of tires Hongook,Michelin and Kumho ) Good luck

I know, all of the things you mentioned have to be in place for the remote to work on the automatic doors. The dealer was actually able to replicate my intermittent problem and confirm that it really is real.
So you have the vibration at 75 mph as well? Does your Entourage shake worse over 80? I haven't been able to get it to over 80 often enough to see how serious a problem this is.

I know this sounds obvious, but make sure the dealer programs your new remote (fob) to your van. Our dealer just handed my wife her new fob, and we couldn't open the rear doors when we got home with it. Just a reminder.
