Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Honda Odyssey?
Very comfortable to drive, reasonable performance.
We chose the Odyssey over the Sienna due to the 2nd row seating: best seats and leg room of all we looked at. Most vans if you're an adult riding in the second row for long trips it can get very uncomfortable.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Honda Odyssey?
Road noise is excessive, (seems to be a common complaint with Honda's overall), inexcusable in this day.
Horrible place to put the gas door release latch (down on the floor at the drivers left foot), tons of room to put something at the dash level.
Gas gauge is way off: indicates 'E' and light comes on when you still have a 1/4 of a tank (max 300 miles between fill-ups. We put 30K per year on our vehicles, that's 100 gas station stops per year with this van).
2007 Honda Odyssey Review:
Overall we have been disappointed with our Odyssey: the gas door latch broke literally day one of ownership, had to drive to the dealer to fill the car the first two weeks of ownership before they could repair it. Proprietary TPMS (only dealer): Honda dealer wants $90.00 to change codes when we change from summer to winter tires, almost any other brand of vehicle the tire stores can do it for free.
Clunking noise from engine compartment when accelerating or breaking (been there since it was new). At 75K we had to replace the power steering pump: checking the forums this doesn't seem to be an uncommon problem for Odysseys. Now we have a new popping noise from what appears to be the right front. You would expect these issues on a car with 150-200K miles, not one with only 75K miles. It is the worst snow and ice car we've owned, even with 4 studded snow tires in winter it has trouble with traction. During hard acceleration such as passing, the car gets squirrley and unpredictable.
Don't think we'll buy another one. With the exception of comfort and interior room, this van makes the 03 Windstar we replaced look pretty good in comparison.
