    In another group I have been following a continuing battle
    some folks are having with a bad vibration at 70mph. Dealers don't
    seem to be able to permanently correct the problem. Multiple service
    visits with no resolution. Tire pressure/wheel balance etc.
    Anyone else have the problem or know of a fix?
    Overall the Entourage looks like a great alternative to the
    Dodge Caravan, but I do a lot of highway driving. Speed limit out here
    is 70 when out of populated areas (Nevada) and don't want to end up
    with a known problem.

    I have one of the first batches of Entourage's to be made and we don't have
    that issue. In fact, other than the light colored carpet getting stained
    easily from the kids (we don't have the floor mats), I can't think of
    anything that is an issue with the Entourage. Oh, the parking brake pedal
    was something I was always hitting when we bought the van, but not since
    after the first month or so.

    Really the only complaint I can think of it that might be legitimate is the
    ingress and egress from the rear seats is a bit of a challenge for some.
    And maybe I would wish for more storage in the back. And I don't mean
    cargo room, there is plenty of that, I mean cubby-type storage for a lug
    nut cross bar and other emergency essentials.

    One of the issues newer vehicles are having is "radial tire force
    variation." In some cases, the springiness in the tire varies depending
    on which part of the tire is on the ground.

    There are machines which can measure the road springiness of the tire and
    aid in mounting the tires in such a way as to minimize the variation. In
    severe cases, tire replacement may be necessary.

    They aren't using Firestone tires are they?
