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. Engine has always pinged and I'm unsure if Honda admits there's a problem and I'm unsure if they're working on a resolution. See everyone complains with the same symptoms. I have had the van checked out and nothing was found wrong. Even with premium unleaded, there is some ping while driving up steep hills, but premium does make the pinging subside somewhat.

1. normal driving around town and freeway. 2. engine pinging, every time vehicle is driven. Long term effect (engine damage). 3. Honda has tried to fix this issue 5 times with no resolve. Tech line states they are aware of the problem but no known resolution at this time. The most recent letter from Honda was nothing is wrong even though the dealer states the pinging is not normal.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,323 miles
2006 Odyssey with 32K miles. Starting at or around 28K noticed a chirping or rattling noise coming from engine. Sounds like valves rattling from going up hill w/low octane gas. Took to dealer at 30K they could not heard noise. Now noise occurs at all times from idle to no A/C on to A/C off to applying a slight amount of gas pedal.
