Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

2007 Ody, bought new in May of 2007, now has 218k (wife has long commute), had power steering issue a few weeks after purchase, dealer fixed. I have changed oil with Mobil 1 Extended Performance Synthetic every 10-12k miles. Been through three sets of front pads, rotors, rear pads and rotors replaced once, full timing belt service at 135k. Changed plugs myself at 176k, they still had more life, but changed anyway. Had tranny reflash, brake recall done (air in lines) , tranny fluid done twice so far, three sets of tires, two alignments, rear liftgate struts failed at 200k and five years. Looking to get at least another 100k out of her !!!




Honda never again

We bought our '07 Odyssey new and have had nothing but problems. Transmission, A/C, Power steering, 3rd set of tires, just to name a few. I have owned some dogs over the years. I once owned a '80 Buick Regal that stalled on railroad tracks! This vehicle however is by far without a doubt the worst car I have ever owned. We bought the car because I kept hearing how reliable Hondas were. Never again will I own a Honda. Advice: If you buy one, buy an '80 Regal so you have something to drive when the Honda is in the shop. I usually keep cars until they have well over 100k miles, this POS has 65k miles and i can't wait to trade it in.

Disappointed

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

We had this car 5 years no - bought it new. No major issues, but the battery sucks. I had to replace it after a year. Also, It will drain if the light are left on for a few hours. Which the fact that the lights will even stay on when the car is off and locked boogles my mind. Esp for a car built to hold small kids. Bumper is really just for looks as it's plastic attached to plastic by plastic. When the passenger window is down, and the driver up, there is an annoying and distracting whomp, whomp, whomp sound. Also, in general a lot of road noise. It served a function when the kids were very small, but I am counting down the days to when I can replace it.




Best vehicle i ever owned!

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

After own a 2 Dodge Caravan and replacing the 3 transmissions later it was time for a change. I drive a lot of miles in a day to go to and from work. All of the miles are highway. It is now Sept 2010 and the only thing I've had to do was general maintenance according to Honda's requirements. Tires, brakes and timing belt replacement were the most pricey repairs. Change the oil when required. I'm on my second set of brakes in 122,000 miles. Second set of tires. I'm 6'4" so I'm loving the higher ceiling and the leg room.




Second honda that is really

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Crack on Windshield within 18 months, Battery went dead with 12 months, One tire had to be replaced since it bulged a bit (paid >$200), dealer never accepted that it was manufacturing mistake, Feeling air flowing through vent even when A/C is off, Alignment gets messed up immediately after 2 weeks of aligning at the dealership (lots of wasted money), not a comfortable ride at all (My Honda Civic had similar problems too not the same, bought both at the same dealership). I really don't like driving Hondas anymore.




Transmission/brake problems do not buy

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Horrible transmission shudder. Rotors warped at 28k. I usually get 70k out of brakes. Transmission has been in twice for updates, etc. Still horrible. Huge delay when shifting into park. You sometimes end up doing a neutral drop by accident. Gear hunting at 35-40 mph. Can't make up its mind and just pulses. Did I mention transmission problems? You can take to dealer but there is no "real" fix. Just a bad product. I was a Honda person, through and through. Now, not so much. This cost me 35k and it drives like a 15k automobile. Extremely disappointed. Glad I bought the 7 yr 120k warranty as I think I am going to need it. Pretty sad to say that about a Honda.:- ((

What's New for 2007

The steering wheel now features telescoping movement, and a tire-pressure monitor is standard on all trim levels.

Introduction

For some people, the minivan is a stigma, a vehicle to be shunned as if it were infected with the bird flu and leprosy at the same time. They go for the big and bold SUV and, in hopes of softening its image, add a trendy stick-figure nuclear family sticker to the back window. While we're fine with all of this, we test enough vehicles to know that the minivan, whatever perceived stereotypes it seems to incur, is still the ultimate family- and gear-hauling machine.

If you prioritize utility, safety and refinement, then your next vehicle purchase could very well be the 2007 Honda Odyssey. This minivan, much like Tiger Woods (but without the incongruous Buick endorsements), is at the top of its game. Starred qualities include a roomy and easily accessed interior, seating for seven or eight passengers, agile handling and plenty of convenience and safety features. Though there are other worthy minivans on the market, none of them can quite match the thoughtfulness that Honda seems to have put into the design of the Odyssey.

Over the years, this Honda minivan has been a near-perennial winner of an Edmunds Editors' Most Wanted award, and the same holds true for this year. If you're shopping for a minivan, the 2007 Honda Odyssey is simply the best choice overall. The only thing that might give you pause is price. Top-shelf Odysseys are priced close to $40,000. This could seem like a lot for a family hauler, but sticking with the midgrade EX is an easy way to get nearly all of the Odyssey's best features without going over budget.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Honda Odyssey minivan is available in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. The base-level LX model comes standard with items like manual-sliding rear doors, power front- and second-row windows, cruise control, air-conditioning, keyless entry and a CD player. The EX trim level adds alloy wheels, power-sliding doors, a power driver seat, an in-dash six-disc CD changer, automatic climate control and additional interior convenience and storage features. There's also an Odyssey EX-L version that provides a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats and a power moonroof. For the EX-L, Honda offers a navigation system with a rearview camera and a DVD entertainment system for rear passengers. For an Odyssey with all the toys, go with the Touring trim. It has a power liftgate, parking sensors, fully automatic tri-zone climate control, power-adjustable pedals and an upgraded audio system with satellite radio.

Powertrains and Performance

The front-wheel-drive Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 capable of 244 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard. For EX-L and Touring models, Honda also adds a cylinder deactivation feature to the V6 to slightly increase fuel economy. So equipped, the Odyssey has an EPA fuel economy rating of 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway, which is slightly above average for the minivan segment.

Safety

Standard safety features on the 2007 Honda Odyssey include antilock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, stability control, front seat-mounted side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor. All 2007 trim levels also have a tire-pressure monitor. For the Touring trim, Honda adds Michelin PAX run-flat tires, a technology that allows punctured tires to be driven on for more than 100 miles.

In terms of crash safety, the 2007 Odyssey earns five out of five stars in all NHTSA front- and side-impact tests. IIHS test results are equally impressive; the Honda minivan has a "Good" rating (the best possible) for performance in frontal-offset and side-impact crashes.

Interior Design and Special Features

The Odyssey can seat seven or eight passengers. Enabling the latter is a stowable middle seat in the second row on EX and EX-L models. This optional seat can be converted into a center tray table or removed and stored in the vehicle's in-floor storage area, which can be made even more functional with a rotating "lazy Susan" feature hidden inside. Touring models forgo the bonus seat in favor of a removable second-row center console. Additionally, the second-row captain's chairs can be pushed together to form a two-passenger bench. In the far back, the third-row seat remains a fold-flat 60/40-split bench. Primed for cargo transport, the Odyssey can hold up to 91 cubic feet of cargo volume behind its second-row seats. Remove the second-row chairs and this minivan can hold up to 147 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The Odyssey has always been highly regarded for its carlike driving characteristics. A high seating position, tight turning radius and nimble suspension make the 2007 Honda Odyssey easy to pilot, though its bulk can be a hindrance if you're never taking extra passengers or gear along. The V6 complements the van's likable road manners, providing satisfying acceleration in virtually all situations.
