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.

problem #1

  • 50,000 miles
Rear tailgate struts fail on 2007 Honda Odyssey, causing tailgate to suddenly crash down. Children were in the vicinity and could have been killed. I took the car to a Honda dealer, and the dealer said it is a common problem. There are also many instances of this problem mentioned on various internet sites. The 2005 Odyssey has been recalled for a similar problem. If someone has not been killed already, someone will be killed if this issue is not soon addressed on a large scale.
