CarComplaints.com 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.

The car would not start, however all the lights would come on. If we played with the locking system the car would start, but the rear door would lock and not open. This would happen often. Recently, the rear trunk, door, is completely locked and will not unlock. There is no way of opening it.

I was driving to a supermarket, I pulled into parking lot and then I saw a lot of smoke coming under the hood, I had my three children inside the car and in minutes my car was totalled completely burned. Honda should pay my van, none noticed any problem before. Side doors won't open at the moment of the fire, very dangerous design for an emergency like this, imagine I mother with child on a car seat and not having acces to the rear seats, when this dangerous situation takes minutes to burn the entire vehicle.

2007 Honda Odyssey drivers side rear door will not open manually or elect. Tried inside and outside have checked the gas entry flap and switches no problems there. My problem is a safety issue. My wife Transport our grand children, the child's car seat has been moved to the passenger side if something were to happen there would be no escape for them. I need an answer. I see there are a lot of complaints on line the dealers haven't been able to fix the problems they re-surface a short time later. This has to be a design flaw, the mechanical should always be able to override the system for safety. I would like to here from someone concerning this problem. This is a death trap.

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.
