Entourage Being Dropped

Discussion in 'Hyundai Entourage' started by Rev. Tom Wenndt, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. Hyundai has announced that they are going to drop their relatively
    slow-selling Entourage minivan, and return to their focus on cars like the
    Genesis and SUV's like the Santa Fe and Tucson.

    Sales were slow, and anyone who wanted one could (and still can) easily get
    the virtually identical (and much more popular) Kia Sedona.

    Where did you see this? I've searched around, but all I can find is the
    dropping of the SE model, but not the entire line.

    Thanks. I actually was thinking seriously about buying one as my local
    dealer has had 4 of them for months now and I've watched the prices come
    from nearly 26K down to less than 20K. I did stop by last week and it
    appears they finally did sell two of the four. However, I don't want to
    buy a vehicle during its last year as the dealership techs won't stay
    proficient on servicing it.

    I know the Kia is identical, but the nearest Kia dealer is much farther
    away than the Hyundai dealer and I drive right by the Hyundai dealer
    every day going to work.

    I guess I may have to buy my third Chrysler minivan even though I find
    the new ones to be quite ugly, particularly from the rear.

  5. Glad I'm not the only one to realize how ugly those Chrysler vans are -
    hideous is a better word.

    But I own the Sedona, and my nearest dealership is almost 40 miles away. I
    hardly ever need them (change my own oil, have a separate tire and alignment
    shop, etc.), and when I do, they are top-notch in understanding what they
    have to do to work with a customer who DOES live that far away.

    Give the Sedona a second look. Beyond the Chrysler's ugliness is the fact
    that you have to spend thousands more and get tons of options you may not
    want to get the only desirable powertrain on the van (the new 4.0L DOHC,
    with the 6-speed automatic). With the Kia, that excellent powertrain is
    standard across the board, even in the base model, where I'm not sure all
    that is needed.

    And if you believe in holding on to your vans awhile, right now Kia is
    trying to sell the last of their '08's, with almost ridiculous incentives -
    $5000 cash back, +$1200 and 0.0% financing for up to 60 with Kia Motors
    finance, and all that is on top of the best deal you can make (which is
    usually another $2000 off the sticker price). That has to be THE best value
    one can ever ask for.

    Thanx for writing.
