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.

I have a 2007 ex with 13,000 miles and both of the tailgate (hatch) struts just failed suddently on 08/15/2010. There should be some additional safety mechanism on these so that they just don't collapse and cause harm (the hatch almost slam my 7-years old son on the head). Both can not go bad at one time and either one should support some weight. It is quite dangerous. These liftgate struts should be recalled before bad things happen. Honda should stand behind what they put in these cars.

We are owners of 2007 Honda Odyssey (VIN # [xxx] ). on July 13, 2010 as we were pulling into a parking lot, the right hand side back window suddenly exploded. The vehicle was traveling less than 5 per hour when this happened. Although four kids and one adult were in the vehicle at the time, no one was injured. We immediately reported the incident to the law enforcement (rpt # [xxx] with city of columbus div. Of police). The police searched for any foreign object that may have hit the window. They found nothing inside or outside of the vehicle. Although we have been experiencing temperature in the high 80's low 90's, it was in the 70's low 80's on that day. When we researched this issue on-line for similar incidents, there were numerous complaints with rear window exploding. We notified the local Honda dealership immediately for potentially defective windows. Although they indicated no specific complaint specific to right back window, they said Honda of America will be contacted and will get back with us. We have three kids under six years of age who primarily get transported with this vehicle. To ensure the safety of our family, we request the safety concern with the window be addressed asap. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The vehicle we are reporting an issue with is a 2007 Honda Odyssey. The car was purchased last October so it is less then 1 year old and has less then 5,000 miles on it. On Tuesday 8/12/2008 the sliding door on the driver side of the car closed on my 2 year olds hand. The door malfunctioned in 2 ways a) the door has a sensor built in that if it meets resistance it bounces back open. In this case the door did not bounce back open as it should have and closed on my kids hand. B) once the door had already closed on his hand we could not get it to open back up and my kids hand was still stuck in the door. The door would not open no matter how many times we hit the open button or pulled on the handle. We had to call the police for help who in turn sent the fire department. The fire department was not able to get the door to open either even with 4 big guys pulling on it, the fire man had to use a crow bar to force the door open. We took my son to the hospital for xrays and they said that due to his age it is the only reason he has no broken bones (at age 2 the bones are still soft and able to flex) they do suspect he might have some fractures so they put him in a soft cast and told us to schedule a visit with a hand surgeon to inspect the hand to make sure there are no fractures and to check his growth palates. The fireman, hospital, and doctors all told us the same thing that if it had been my 6 or 4 year old whose hand got stuck we would have been dealing with broken bones. Now that this has happened to us I did a search on line and see that other people have had similar problems with the sliding doors on Honda Odyssey's all the way back to 2000. This is an issue that Honda has gotten away with up until now. Honda needs to take care of this issues that they know about and not sweep it under the rug.

Manufacturing defect of 2007 Honda Odyssey leads to eventual air conditioning failure as condenser is not protected from debris (such as rocks) hitting it and putting a hole in it. Hundreds, if not more, of other vehicle owners have had the same problems.

Honda Odyssey air conditioning failed after 10000 miles. Dealer claims rock punched a hole in the ac condenser. Price to fix - $700. American Honda says because cause is road damage, warranty does not cover it. This is a design flaw.

A rock damage my 2007 Honda causing freon to leak out. Honda dealer estimated that it will cost $800 to fix this. I believe that this is a design flaw with the condenser that Honda should recall. I could understand that a rock damage a windshield, but not some part in the engine. Please review more complaints at
