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.

Vehicle was hard to steer at low speeds also during cold weather we hear a loud whining noise coming from the power steering pump. Took the vehicle to the Honda dealer where we were told the power steering pump was bad. They replaced the pump and told us if we hear the whining noise again it is probably the power steering resovior which was not replaced. There is also a popping sound in the steering which they say is the rack and pinion and it needs to be replaced. Now the vehicle is not under warranty anymore but before the warranty had expired we had taken the vehicle to the dealer to diagnose the popping noise but was told they could not find anything wrong. Magically now they have found the problem. With them now wanting to charge $2000 to fix it. The vehicle only has 54000 miles and should not be having this much trouble. I have never owned a vehicle needing this much work this soon. Although I do love my vehicle I can honestly say I am having doubts of ever owning another one. If they know there is a problem they should fix the problem.

I am a owner of Honda Odyssey 2007. We start to hear noise around 2008 winter after highway driving. Then, we begin to experience the difficulty to turn wheel occasionally between 2008 to 2010. In 2011, the difficulty of turning wheel become more frequent at low speed, but manageable. In June 2011, we experienced difficulty to turn wheel during a trip on highway driving. This incident made us to aware the problem of power steering pump. After searching the website, many Honda Odyssey owners complained the same problem and mentioned that Honda installed the problematic power steering pump for their car since 2004, therefore a service bulletin 10-076 was announced by Honda. Please consider a recall service from Honda to protect Honda owners' safety during highway driving. Thanks.
