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.

My ac quit working in my 2007 Honda Odyssey. This was in July, 2008 with only 13900 miles on the vehicle. I was told it was a hole in condenser, and not covered under warranty. The service advisor explained to me that it was because Honda was making the grille wider to allow the engine to stay cooler. And that this was a freak thing. Now, less than 1 year later, it's happened again! they won't fix it or discount it due to it being "road damage". I understand that now they are making them with grills for protection on the 2008 models and later. Obviously they've realized it's a manufacturers defect.

2007 Honda Odyssey - 3/28/09. Noticed ac was not working. On 4/6/09 I took the vehicle to be inspected at the dealership where it was purchased. The service rep indicated it was a small hole in the condenser, most likely caused by a road hazard (rock), and not covered by the warranty. I paid for the $1060 repair. After the vehicle was repaired, I was told by coworkers it is a notorious design issue. This was confirmed by a quick visit to google. The dealership made no mention of the common occurrence. Hopefully with enough complaints, Honda will be forced to admit there is a major problem and offer some form of help. Please add me to the list of impacted owners. I instructed the service rep to move forward with repairs at 9:30am. By 2:30pm I was picking up the vehicle. $1060, with $516 of that for labor. If it's determined to be a limited problem, I have no issues; however, everything I read indicates a problem where significant owners are being affected.

My 2007 Honda Odyssey's air conditioning stopped working, the van has only 11,000 miles on it. I took the van to the dealer for service and was told that a rock had hit the ac condenser and that it was not covered by warranty. I feel that their assessment of the root cause of the problem to be very subjective, just how do they know that a rock caused the problem with no visible damage.. I was told the part would cost $800 and it would be ordered. I have since found out that this is a frequent problem that is probably due to faulty design. I feel Honda should be responsible for the cost of repairs and do a corrective action recall on this vehicle.

In May 2008, just 9 months after driving my brand new 2007 Honda Odyssey off the showroom floor, my air conditioning went out. I took it back to the dealership where I had purchased the vehicle fully anticipating my factory warranty to cover the cost of the repair. After diagnosing the problem, I was told by the service department at the dealership that a rock had punctured the condenser causing the coolant to leak out. I was also told that this was deemed a "freak accident? and an ?act of nature? and therefore was not a warranty. The total cost of the repair, including labor, was $780. I was informed by american Honda that the only warrantable repairs are ?factory defects". I examined the front of my van along the bottom and I discovered that my condenser sits right at the front of the vehicle, completely exposed. I investigated the matter further and discovered that in the next year's model, the 2008 Odyssey, Honda has gone in and added a grill over the condenser to protect it. I also discovered thousands of other Odyssey owners who have experienced the exact same problem and were given the exact same regurgitate answer from their dealership and from american Honda. This was not a freak accident, rather, it is a widespread problem on these vehicles caused by a defective design.

Ac condenser failed on my 2006 Honda Odyssey at 19075 miles. Service claims road damage and charged over $600 to repair not covered by my extended warranty. This is a continuing problem with Honda and should be covered by warranty.

I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey. Mileage is less than 10,000 miles. Air conditioning was blowing hot air. Took it to the Honda dealership in roanoke, Virginia, and was told that it looks like a rock had flown into the air conditioning condenser and punctured it. They would not cover it under warranty and said that I could make a claim under my auto insurance policy. Their charge to repair/replace is $700.

Odyssey 6-cyl

Dealership claimed that a stone caused a hole in the air conditioner (A/C) condenser hose in the front of the vehicle, thereby denying responsibility as a warranty item. The 2007 Honda Odyssey was only 3 months old and the A/C was blowing hot air. The repair costs $600. This was a common problem that Honda was not addressing.
