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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 102007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,666 miles


At 2,666 miles on the odometer, my Honda Odyssey exl, purchased on 2/28/2007, suffered catastrophic engine failure in the middle of an intersection. While the service department is unclear on the root cause of the problem, they found the front cam shaft frozen in the cylinder head with the speculation that there was a casting head problem with debris inside the valve assembly. All fluids were at recommended levels. A partial list of repairs: - front head assembly and gasket replaced - rear head gasket replaced. - timing belt and tensioner replaced. - drive belt idler tensioner replaced. - coolant system gasket replaced. - front engine seals replaced. - outer head assembly replaced. How no injury or accident occurred while my car died in the middle of a busy intersection, is just my good fortune. My bad fortune is having to navigate a rude and unaccountable corporate "service" department and live with the legacy of a major manufacturing defect.
