NHTSA Recall ID Number : 16V843

Recall for the secondary hood latch

Vehicle Make Model Model Year(s)

  • HYUNDAI ENTOURAGE 2007-2008
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America
SUMMARY:

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Entourage vehicles manufactured February 16, 2006, to June 30, 2008. In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch may corrode and bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. CONSEQUENCE:

If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. REMEDY:

Hyundai will notify all of the owners. For 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, dealers will replace the secondary latch. For vehicles in any other state, dealers will inspect and either lubricate or replace the secondary latch, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 154. NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

I had this recall sent to me aoem time ago now....oddly, it was from Kia Canada. A few days later I received a letter from Hyundai to say the recall did not affect my vehicle (2007 Entourage Limited).
I'll dig up those two letters are post them if possible.

Recall up and running :

SECONDARY HOOD LATCH INSPECTION AND REPLACEMENT (RECALL 154)

Description:

This bulletin describes the procedure to replace or inspect and lubricate the secondary
hood latch on certain 2007-2008 MY Hyundai Entourage vehicles.

The secondary hood latch may become corroded over time and cause the latch to remain in the open position when the hood is closed.

If the hood is not securely closed or the primary hood latch is released while driving, the hood
may open and obscure the driver’s vision, increasing the risk of a crash. The hood will not open if the
primary latch is securely latched.

Salt Belt States:

Note 1:
For the affected vehicles originally sold or currently registered in one of twenty-eight (28) salt belt states where heavy amounts of road salt are used for de-icing in the winter months, the
secondary hood latch is to be replaced. The 28 salt belt states are: AK, CT, DC, DE, IA, IL, IN, MA,
MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VT, WI, WV, KS, KY, NE, ND, SD and UT.

Non-Salt Belt States:
For vehicles not originally sold and not currently registered in one of twenty-eight (28) salt belt states, the secondary hood latch is to be inspected and lubricated or replaced if necessary.

Note 2:
If replacement is not warranted, the secondary hood latch is to be cleaned and lubricated
according to the Secondary Hood Latch Inspection and Lubrication procedure on Page 3 of this
bulletin.

Note 3: If replacement is required, the secondary hood latch is to be replaced according to the
Secondary Hood Latch Replacement procedure on Page 4 of this bulletin.

------------------------------------------------

So if people would oil their stuff once in while, would be a non-issue

I can't believe that NHTSA would actually issue a recall for this condition. Anyone who lives in an area that has high humidity or uses salt on roadways knows that *any* car will eventually have this problem. Sure, some are more likely than others due to hood latch location but eventually the latch or secondary latch lubricant is washed away by road spray and the latch starts to tighten up.

Here in SE PA I check for this on every car at State Safety Inspection time. Any latch or secondary latch showing signs of sluggishness gets a shot of PB Blaster and/or a squirt of oil. Then I'll exercise the latch until it operates freely.

I do notice that some Hyundai models have tight hood *hinges* due to lack of lube and/or rust. In extreme cases you can bend the hinges or hood corners when a hinge really seizes.

NHTSA DOES NOT issue recalls... Manufacturer sets up recall and notifies NHTSA that they is planning to run a recall.. NHTSA is an independent organization, they cannot up and issue recall

Had fella show up with a major "barn find" that they manaage to break the hinge at 1 side,, I ended up replacing 2 hinge with new part per request.. funny thing was, he was there for recall (cobb webs, rust),, and he wanted price on hinges.. you getting $700+ of FREE part and labor, and want price on 2 hinges as hood sitting sideways when received... then steer rack started to spray oil out after sitting close to 6 hr running for A/C concern

The recall is definitely up and running. The official Safety Recall letter, complete with my 07's VIN, arrived in yesterday's mail.
