Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 2007-2009 was, at one point, the best selling minivan in the United States. But 2007 owners got the short end of that deal.

Peeling paint, a whining steering pump and an easily breakable A/C condenser are all top complaints about the 2007 model year. And anyone who doesn't think a busted minivan A/C is a big deal has never taken a summer road trip with kids.

2007 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #6

Feb 152014

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 56,000 miles


Returned to the car after shopping. Opened the tailgate for loading groceries. Tailgate closed without warning. Fortunately, no one was under and no one was injured. Afterward, tailgate would not stay open. Struts failure was the reason. Struts failure without warning is a big safety risk because the tailgate is very heavy, and could cause severe injuries if someone is under.

Odyssey 6-cyl

The tailgate of my van, didn't stay open. As soon as I leave my hand from it, instead of staying open, it just came down and closed. I was nearly hurt..... I talked to american Honda, and they didn't think this is worthy of recall. Even though, 2008 Honda Odyssey has a similar defect and they have issued recall. But not for 2007 model.

Honda Odyssey 2007 tail gate strut problem. It has been observed over the net that the Honda Odyssey tail gate gas lift dies after about 32,000 to 39,000 miles. Our died at 42,000 miles. Can you please keep record for this complaint and see if this helps to make sure that manufacture can provide some better parts. Thanks!!!

The stabilus stay assemble tailgate open num 74820-sju-A012 failed and let the tailgate door fall. It almost hit me on the head. Since then it fails to hold the tailgate door open on the Honda Odyssey ex-L.2007.

I have a 2007 ex with 13,000 miles and both of the tailgate (hatch) struts just failed suddently on 08/15/2010. There should be some additional safety mechanism on these so that they just don't collapse and cause harm (the hatch almost slam my 7-years old son on the head). Both can not go bad at one time and either one should support some weight. It is quite dangerous. These liftgate struts should be recalled before bad things happen. Honda should stand behind what they put in these cars.

The tailgate failed to stay open all the sudden, a direct hit on the driver with minor body injury. It had been working before and failed without any sign.
