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


Review

14,000 miles so far & MPG is crap, all highway driving, no matter how fast or type of terrain no better than 21, far cry from 28 on sticker. Going in tomorrow for power steering issues & transmission that is slow to respond when starting out. Had problems several problems with an 05 so traded it for an 07, should have traded for a Domestic. Honda should be held responsible for the misrepresentation of the gas mileage!


Best Features

I like the ride, other than noisy. Installed Aftermarket rear entertainment, better than OEM.


Worst Features

Gas mileage... Gas mileage... Gas mileage!

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


Review

Salesman told me I would do better than the Toyota Sienna I traded in which was a lie. Toyota Sienna got 19 combined city/highway and 28 highway; Honda Odyssey gets 16 1/2 combined city highway and 21 highway which is a big disappointment.


Best Features

Good handling except when starting out and making a turn which causes torque steer almost to where you lose steering control - service mgr said this was normal just like anything I complained about


Worst Features

Gas mileage is horrible

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


Review

Loved this car at purchase, now, five months later, its problems are obvious. Gas mileage for city driving is the worst -- low teens at best. Couple this with a transmission that is way too eager to downshift (the car will not coast at low speeds - foot must always be on the accelerator!) and you have the king of all gas guzzlers. The brakes are too soft and getting softer by the day -- really emphasizes the car's bulk when your leg hurts just trying to get it to stop. These flaws make it impossible to enjoy driving this car. I would expect these kind of issues from a so-so vehicle, but not a Honda! Won't be getting one again. Can't believe I miss my old Caravan. . .


Best Features

Interior, leather seats are soft and comfy, climate control system is excellent. Steering is very smooth.


Worst Features

Improve transmission, braking, and gas mileage, and HONDA -- acknowledge your car's problems and issue a recall if necessary.

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


Review

Getting on average 19-21 MPG with mixed driving (including hills). Most of the time the ECO light is on and I don't jump on the gas (not that you need to). Power steering pump and left front ball joint had to be replaced w/in 1st year, but dealership stepped up. Overall we are happy. My wife liked it b/c it drives and (interior) feels like her 2003 Accord.


Best Features

Road handling, engine performance, gas mileage (for a van), build quality (ignoring defects in year 1). I like the fact that Honda doesn't give you many choices unlike Toyota where your head is spinning by the time you decide on which car you want.


Worst Features

Radio-With DVD package (better screen quality and shouldn't have to put "REAR POWER" on to display image.

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


Review

Impressive overall, but does not shift as smoothly as the Caravan, although mileage has held at about 20 mpg (about the same as the Dodge). The controls are confusing, especially for a person accustomed to driving American-designed cars (are you listening Japan?). Power doors should have a disconnect feature to allow you to open them easy to open without power assist like the Dodge. Plush interior is on a par with my father-in- law's Avalon. Auto climate control for the rear zone, variable heat setting for the seats, roof rack bars, should be standard equipment at this trim level like on the Dodge. Love the van, but do not feel it is worth a $4,000 to $6,000 premium over the Dodge!


Best Features

Love the 248 hp engine, very responsive, sports car-like handling,plush interior with LOTS of storage. Fit and finish is the best of any vehicle I have owned. I get a lot on compliments on this van and see a lot of shocked faces when I tell them it only cost me $24,000 (about same price as Dodge)!


Worst Features

Feature to override locks when opening power side door or opening driver's door, Door handles on power side door should pull TOWARDS rear, not front, tranny should shift more smoothly, especially on downshifts, put power door buttons on b-pillar, make reverse sensing system factory option on any model
