Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I bought this van used. My mechanic, a 30 year veteran, did pre-purchace inspections on six Odysseys before we found a well maintained one with 60K. I was happy with the van for the first few months, and then....problem after problem: a blown power steering line, overheating caused by a faulty Honda fuse, a bad power steering pump, and a leaking power steering rack (at 64K?!). I called Honda USA about the leaking power steering rack and asked them for what is known in the business as "Goodwill". They were arrogant, refused, and could care less about repeat customers. I will never buy another Honda.

Problems, problems, problems.

Premature rotor warping, premature rack seal leak. The power steering pump was recalled. 3 months later the power steering rack starts leaking. This is a common problem in Odysseys- the bad pump could let air into the system. Honda USA was dismissive and offered no goodwill. The dealer I bought the van used from installed new front rotors and pads. 8 months later they warped. I don't drive hard or brake at high speeds. I installed new Centric premium rotors and pads. They warped in 8 months. Front brake rotors usually last me 2-3 years. The Odyssey has badly designed brakes and power steering systems. DO NOT BUY AN ODYSSEY.

Still running great

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Bought used in 2009. It now has 120,000 miles, a mix of long highway driving and short trips. This car has not been babied. Only maintenance is oil/filter changes. We've had to put a couple thousand dollars into it replacing normal aging things. Passenger side door has to be pulled twice to get it to close or open and it kinda thuds when it does. The cloth interior has a lot of worn spots and paint around the bumper is peeling in places. Overall it's been a great car. The kids hate driving in an "uncool" minivan but love having room for a bunch of friends. They love the interior as well. This car is great for long road trips. Very comfortable. I plan to drive it another 100,000.

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I'm surprised at how many wrote in saying they were disappointed with the 07) but the star rating they gave the van was 4 stars--huh? This is our second Odyssey. Our first was a 2004 lease that was very nice. A few problems we had with the 04 were covered under warranty. The battery had to be replaced, rear window in the back motor had to be replaced. And even though I hit the button to lock the car (and heard the beep) one of the back doors was not locking. For our 2007 . We now have 68,000 miles on the car and it has been very reliable (knock on wood) all we had to do was normal maintenance. New tires, alignment, battery, and brakes. We did replace the battery (with in first 2 years

Bad 2007 odyssey

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

First and last Honda. We get only 12 MPG in city and the dealership says it is within specs. At 55K miles on 3rd battery, tire rods had to be replaced, power steering pump replaced and now the motor mounts being replace. When we took it in for the tire rods they informed us that the motor mounts were bad, however, they failed to tell us it was under warranty and wanted us to pay $1K. Read the warranty book and found out it was covered. Discussed with the service manager and got a BS excuse for not informing us that it was covered. Piece of junk.

Axle/transmission/steering - bad

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Do not buy one of these. This will be the fifth time going to the dealership for repairs! The transmission, axles, wheels, steering, are poorly made. I will never buy another Honda again (unless they give me a huge amount of money to trade this minivan in for something else).

What's New for 2007

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


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.


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.
