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 #4

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


This complaint is about the raybestos's advanced technology rotors (model #980290) that I brought at O'reilly auto part store and installed on my 2007 Honda Odyssey in 06/26/2011. Last week on 06/23/2013 while inspecting the pulsation issues, I found fine cracks on both rotors. With curiosity I searched "raybestos rotor cracks" over the internet and I found the brake rotor safety public awareness published at the raybestos site. Based on the information from raybestos, certain imported brake rotors including raybestos brand have this issue. I checked the box and found the rotors were made in china. Their site provided NHTSA link to file complaint.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,321 miles
Very hard transmission downshift upon slowing the van. After downshift the van has a sharp jerk and seems to have to catch the transmission before going into a lower gear. Transmission has been replaced twice since purchased new an May 28, 2007. Now dealer and Honda factory service rep is saying this is a "normal characteristic" of this van, even after replacing the transmission twice for the same issue. The first new transmission was at 3321 miles and second was at 12,281 miles. Brakes: Sloppy and weak brakes since purchase. Rotors turned and pad replaced at 166 miles, three days after buying new. Still soft and vibrating upon stopping. Dealer says this is also normal. Between the transmission and brake problems, we do not feel that this is a safe van for our children to ride in. American Honda has been more than uncooperative. There is a very dangerous defect with this van and we are afraid to drive it.

Odyssey 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,100 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that the brakes engage by themselves while driving 5 mph. She can feel the ABS as she drives and hears a popping sound when she depresses the brake pedal. The vehicle will slow down, but it fails to come to a complete stop. The failure only occurs after driving for a long period of time. The contact also feels a vibration, which she believes is due to the rotors. The current and failure mileages were 2,100. The consumer stated smoke was coming from the tires at the time she tried to stop the vehicle. Updated 08/29/07
