> Wrapping up the year we have yet another Hyundai recall. This time
it is the Entourage minivan (41,264 of them) that have faulty hood
> From AB
> The Basics: Hyundai is recalling 41,264 2007-2008 Entourage
minivans because the hood latch may corrode, causing it to open while
driving. The recall affects every Entourage manufactured between
February 16, 2006, to June 30, 2008, though the fix varies depending
on the state.
> The Problem: The secondary hood latch can corrode, meaning the hood
may not close properly. This could cause the hood to fly open while
driving and causing an accident. Based on the states where the van is
recalled, it seems to be an issue related to rust.
> Injuries/Deaths: None, though the investigation into the recall was
prompted by several incidents where the hood latch malfunctioned.
> The fix: Hyundai dealers will replace the latch on vehicles
originally sold, or ever registered, in Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire,
New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the
District of Columbia.
> For Entourages in other states, dealers will inspect, lubricate,
and, if necessary, replace the latch.
> If you own one: The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2016.
Expect a notice if you own a 2007-08 Entourage. Owners may contact
Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this
