The passenger side power sliding rear door began intermittently having issues closing-it would close about 75% of the way, then beep as it does if there is an object blocking it's path, then open back up. I would have to pull the door to help guide it closed. Before I could get it to the Honda dealer, the driver side power sliding rear door began doing something similar. It would close only about 90%, but I was unable to pull it fully closed. I flipped the switch to turn the doors from power operation to manual operation, thinking everything would be ok. I was able to get the driver side sliding door closed manually. However, when we arrived at our destination, I tried to open the passenger side sliding door (switch was still in the manual position), and was only able to open it about 8-10 inches. I could not get my 2 yr old daughter out of her car seat. I pushed with all of my strength, and it would not budge. I ran back around, flipped the switch back to auto, and was able to get the door open that way. However, this ordeal has shown me a severe safety flaw with the power sliding doors on the 2007 Odyssey. If we had been in a situation where the vehicle was on fire--possibly from the now recalled fuel mechanism that can catch fire--I would not have been able to get them out. In an emergency, when every second counts, the door issue could literally have made the difference between life and death. My husband looked at the door that evening, and he, too, was unable to get the passenger side door to budge when set to manual operation. He had to lift the back of it and pull it open. Also, he looked at the drivers side sliding door and noticed metal shavings on the door where metal had literally been grinding on metal. The roller mechanism is no longer working. I am taking it in to my local Honda dealer.

My tenant's 2007 Honda Odyssey burnt in the driveway next to the deck. The fire department said it was an electric fire on the passenger side of the engine. The car had not been for 3 days. Does Honda have any liability for my damages, over the insurance deductible? the damage was close to $2500. I had a $1,000. Ded. It seems the insurance company just writes if off. How can I get help from Honda for my loss. The tenant says he had lost on van and contents. Should I contact Honda (how) should I contract his car insurance? if his car hit the house I guess car insurance would for the deck.

Drivers side window works but all 3 passenger windows stopped working. Windows will not work from drivers control or from individual window controls. Child safety is not engaged and control is unlocked on drivers side. I have seen dozens of complaints on-line about this problem; seems Honda should take care of a problem that is occurring in great numbers across many older and newer Odyssey models.

The windows would not roll back up. It was freezing outside and we were on a long road trip. Fuse box was checked. All working. Locks were checked. All working. The driver side window is the only window that will operate. Thankfully, they rolled back up and we locked it with the main switch on the drivers side. At first they worked intermittently, however, after unlocking the safety master window switch after our vacation, the windows no longer work (except for the driver side window). This is a huge safety issue when needing fresh air, or for getting car sick. I've seen many vehicles of this same manufacturer having this same problem when searching for solutions online.

Vsa warning light went on suddenly during driving. Steering wheel feels not stable when turning after the light is on. Took the vehicle to Honda dealer and was told the communication between the vsa module and the computer is lost and need replace vsa module for $1,600. It is not a problem caused by wear-and tear and Honda should be responsible for making the electronics more reliable in Odyssey models.

The fire department was called and responded to confirm the fire was extinguished. The part was replaced.
