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.

Purchased car in December 2013. Vehicle makes a rumbling sound above the radio dash board when car reaches 30-35 miles per hour. Took car to service and was informed that car needed front end alignment and that tires were not wearing evenly. Had front end alignment completed. Car still makes rumbling sound. Have not had this experience on previous models. Sound is annoying. Considering rotating and/or replacing tires. What then if sound continues?

Today 2/15/13, when my family and I were driving from austin to houston around 7:30 am on a 2007 Honda Odyssey mini van a one of four tires exploded. We did not hit anything on the highway it just exploded in an area close to the rim. It was a rear tire. We called aaa to come to help us and later we went to 2 different Goodyear tire outlets and I noticed that all tires of these kind had bubbles all over the tires. The tires were bought less than 3 years ago and have about half of its treads left on them.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Odyssey, equipped with Goodyear assurance touring tires, size: 235/65/R16. The contact stated that while driving 70 mph, the rear driver side tire failed. The vehicle was towed to a tire shop where the tire was replaced. The technicians determined that the failure was caused by a sidewall blowout. A Goodyear dealer also inspected tire and advised that the blow out was caused by a low psi. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The VIN and dot number were not available. The failure mileage was 105,065. The current mileage was 105,500. The approximate tire failure mileage was 200.

Going South on hwy 5 from just outside sacrament, (by freeport) we struck something not visible in the road and the vehicle warned us we had a flat and not to exceed 50 mph. Our minivan was equipped with Michelin pax system run flat tires and no spare. We pulled of the hwy at elk grove and called the local Honda dealer. It was almost 5pm and they said could not help until Tuesday. The manual said we could go 125 miles with a flat tire and our home was less than 60 miles away so we put on the cruise control at 50 mph on hwy 5, then hwy 12 West, and then hwy 160 South. Just North of the antioch bridge the front left tire shredded and we were stranded in the middle of nowhere for over an hour until aaa provided assistance. I contacted Michelin and Honda on Tuesday following and Michelin offered to pay 30% of the cost of a new tire but nothing towards the cost of removing the tire and putting a new one on. Honda offered nothing. I rejected Michelin's offer and they raised it to 50 % and I still rejected it and we have taken the vehicle to a tire store to replace all four wheels and tires because we feel the run flat system is defective and dangerous.

Honda Odyssey 2007. Sudden unintended acceleration. While approaching at about 5mph to a stop sign with a stopped vehicle before me, I applied the brake but rather than stopping, the car lurched and the tachometer rose to >2000. I kept my foot down and applied more force on the brake and the car then came to full stop. This is very disconcerting. We bought this vehicle new and after ~ 15000 miles, the car vibrated excessively while traveling at 60-70 mph. Per repair shops, all four tires were "deformed" and cannot be repaired and needed to be replaced.

2007 Honda Odyssey (touring) and Michelin pax tires. The premature wear and limited service availability of the pax tires makes this vehicle unsafe for highway driving. A suit was pushed through federal district court (Maryland) on this and provided no viable relief to the situation. It favored the attorneys involved in filing the suit. The issue of practicality of these tires is now clear since Michelin has now terminated the pax line from new vehicles, thus in time the current limited durability will be further degraded by the age of existing pax tires to service the vehicles which were fitted for this "revolutionary" design. I experienced a premature catastrophic failure of one of my tires and had to struggle (out of state) to find a Honda dealer with the equipment to replace the tire. If you have a need on a Friday night you will be marooned until the next business week to find a Michelin or Honda dealer with the expensive equipment necessary to replace a tire needing replacement. Thus creating a safety issue if my wife and young child are on the open road and stuck somewhere. Neither Honda or Michelin are standing behind this product. The van is great except the tire system. I cannot find a local Honda dealer willing to confront Honda on swapping tire systems. The closest one is in cleveland, oh (I live in great falls, va). Online research clearly identifies there is a problem but neither Honda or Michelin are developing a reasonable remedy. Your tire page does not list the Michelin tire I have. My Michelin is 235-710R460A 104T.

There is a class action suit presently being settled between owners of the Honda Odyssey van (equipped with "run-flat" pax tires) and Honda motor company and Michelin tire company. The issue involves poor tread wear on these tires, the fact that the Honda van with these tires has no spare tire, and the fact the tire can only be changed by Honda dealers equipped with the "changing machine." There are many sub-issues in the case which relate to passenger safety and security. I hope NHTSA is attuned to this class action suit, wherein thousands of Honda owners are affected. I was told by my own Honda dealer, that to cost to replace the worn-out tires, remounting and alignment, is over $1,200. Yipes!! worst yet, a family in this Honda van could have a flat tire on a motor trip, have no spare tire, and must "find" the Honda dealer who has the patented equipment to change the tire. If you breakdown on a weekend, I guess you must stay in a motel until the Honda dealer (if there is one) opens during the week days. The pax tires are a potential hazard to the safety and security of passengers in the Honda Odyssey touring model which is equipped with these tires. I hope NHTSA is monitoring this case, which is defined as follows: Re Michelin North America, Inc.. pax system marketing and sales practices litigation (case no.8:08-md-01911-rwt). This case is being heard in a "fair settlement hearing: Conducted in the United States district court, district of Maryland, greenbelt division, 6500 cherrywood lane, greenbelt, md 20770. Plaintiffs' attorney is james E. miller, shepherd, finkelman, miller & shah, llp 65 main street, chester, ct 06412 ( 1-866-540-5505 note: The tire specifications listed are not correct. The Michelin tire is 235-71or460A energy LX4 pax. Also known as pax "run flat" tires. Disregard my computer entries, which conformed with format. Benjamin M. hamilton

2007 Honda Odyssey - problem is the vehicle / tire design. The van has the Michelin pax tires; the combination of the van and tires results in ridiculous poor tread life resulting in excessive replacement costs. Our vehicle has 36K miles. We have had one tire replaced under warranty but had to pay over $100 in labor only to replace the tire. In December of 2008, I replaced two front tires (over $300 per tire) plus paid money to get all 4-wheels aligned (as a security measure to minimize any possible tire wear). 3-months later, my two rear tires had an excessive wear pattern on the inside wall. One of the tires is only 9-months old!! the dealer is telling me I need to replace both tires at a total cost of $700 - this wear pattern was soon after the dealer alignment. What makes matters worse is that Honda will not allow customers to replace the pax tire system with another alternative so the consumer is forced to pay excessive labor costs to replace tires that have very poor wear patterns and poor tire life. The consumer is "stuck" with continuous repair and replacement costs. We cannot afford to replace our tires yet the dealer tells us the tires must be replaced due to poor wear on one side of each tire (even though they advertise the tire as a "safe product"??).

Complaint for tires on a 2007 Honda Odyssey touring. Consumer states that the tires are special and can only be fixed by certain authorized dealers and maintenance people. The consumer had a flat tire and had difficulty obtaining a tire. The consumer was informed because of the cost of the equipment, low incidence of the pac tires use and the cost of labor the tire was not being sold at the particular location and the closest dealer was 500 miles away. (Michelin pac tires).
