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


Review

The Odyssey is a great van, but Honda has misrepresented its fuel economy. The window sticker indicated the van would average 19 city and 26 hwy for mpg. After 10,000 miles the best I've seen is 22 mpg on the hwy and my average fuel economy has been 17 to 18 mpg. I anticipated my average fuel economy would be 22.5 mpg when purchasing the van. The reduction to 18 will cost me $5,700 if I drive it for 150,000 miles at $4.00 a gallon. Can I suggest class action law suit?


Favorite Features

DVD player, auto doors


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy, auto lift gate, MP3 connect

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


Review

We've had our '07 Honda Odyssey EXL-RES for about 6 months. Like everyone else says, the MPG is horrible. In the third month, dealer had to "replace the fuse box" because the wipers would only work on high, brights would not work, and car alarm would not arm - major annoyances. The exterior and interior of the van are nice. The shifting is VERY uneven and like another poster said, is very pronounced when coasting. I never thought I would miss my Grand Caravan but I do.


Favorite Features

Nice interior. Stowable seats


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy - the electronic valve control (?) is a joke. Shifting is very jerky.

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


Review

The main reason I came here is to say that I was able to avoid a head on collision and the Odyssey took it all in stride. An approaching car doing about 40 crossed into our lane as we were doing 40 (driver was texting). Two adults, a child, and an infant were on board the Ody. With a palm on the horn, I swerve HARD right towards the curbing, and then swerved HARD left to avoid the woods. The oncoming car missed the front left by inches and the van actually DRIFTED cleanly around the nose of the oncoming car as it passed within inches to our left flank. The van was totally composed with no roll tendency and the drift was corrected by the stability system.


Favorite Features

Quiet ride, firm but quiet suspension, plenty of power, tons of room, great handling in emergency situation. Holds it's value. Camper like convenience. Pass-through front seats. Nice paint. Great headlights.


Suggested Improvements

HVAC controls nice, but confusing. Side door handles pull at awkward angle. Oil filter drains onto subframe when changing. Slight rattle in both side doors. Firm up the brake pedal, it's the only thing that does not feel like a good car.

Review

Very, very disappointed with the gas mileage. City is 15-16; haven't done much highway, but it was 18 once. As I approach 3rd gear (around 38-40 mph), there is a surge forward with the van, even if I don't have my foot on the gas at the time. Asked service person, and he said that unless the red light comes on the dashboard, they can't diagnose it. I wish I could trade it in, but I need the room for carpool for my grandchildren. My husband has had 5 Accords, but this is my first and last Honda! Bring back my Toyota 4-Runner!


Favorite Features

Great handling, good headlights, storage space.


Suggested Improvements

Light up the clock, radio stations, and heat/ac mode with the green lighting like the mileage has during the day. Change places between the heat&a/c with the radio/disk. It's a stretch to reach the radio buttons--vents should be up higher. On/off button for radio on steering wheel. Gas mileage!

Review

I hit a deer on the right front side on the interstate doing 70 mph. It hardly felt like I hit anything. The kids were to busy watching the dvd in back to notice. It's a credit to how the van was designed. The front bumper, hood, right headlight, and right passenger door had to be replaced with a pull to the unibody frame by the headlight. 9k bill to the insurance company.


Favorite Features

It's Safe!


Suggested Improvements

Minor vibration in the sun visor. The a/c & heating systems are too fancy.
