Vehicle2007 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewThis is a 8/1/16 update of my 2012 review. I have had to replace the power steering rack and pinion and the front motor mount. The rack was a $1700. job and the mount $450. Honda USA refused to admit their recalled power steering pump damaged the rack and did not offer any "good will" discount. It's a money pit. I'm going back to German for my next vehicle. 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 and rack and pinion, motor mount, overheating caused by a faulty Honda fuse, CV/axle joints, timing belt, the rear widow washer doesn't work and would cost hundreds of dollars to fix, noise in final drive section of the transmission.
