Great mini van overall, as compared to others...would never by a Nissan or a Dodge minivan! nothing but trouble wanted to drive my last Dodge in a lake.. the Nissan major tranny problems..all cars have their own problems use your own judgement ... Overall a really like my 2007 Honda Odyssey. and I will never miss my SUV i traded in for it.. I strongly recommend the Honda.. and its good on gas too. lastly I can make any vehicle burn lots of gas....read morehide

- like this van, convenient for me and my family.
- Maintenance is outrage w/dealers. No saving money if you own this car
Purchased As Used
Potential buyer, invest in lower cost cars: like toyota, ford, GM, dodge which give you better cost savings on repair rather than throwing your money out of the window. wish I could get rid of mine right now.

- No true good thing about it really!
- Bad transmission, poor fuel economy, rattles, weak brakes, pricey.
Honda Odyssey is too pricey for the $38,000 for the Touring and dealer gave it for 2.9 % financing just to get rid of it, but I realized that paying it back will mean it has to over come the defects and problems it will encounter as recalls keep on coming. I regret my purchase and should not have commited to the low financing....read morehide

- good performance overall except the tires and navigation
- poor tire traction in snow, excess wearoff and too pricy for replacement
navigation is not reliable, this is my seond odyssey and the last one the vehicle is roomy and comfortable, but too expensive for maintainence, so-called flat-free tire is totally a joke, don't believe it

- Too pricey, bad MPG, unreliable transmission, hard ride, road noise, rattles.
Honda is not improving the Odyssey, with transmission defects, especially shifting and oil leaks. I am going to trade it for the new '08 Dodge Caravan coming this fall or earlier. Caravans are the best vans in the market and with the new style and innovations, top rated from customers and car magazine editors! It started the mini vans era and trend setters....read morehide

- Handles well,
- PAX tires are a cruel joke, noisy brakes, poor MPG
Honda and Michelin have teamed up to install the PAX (run flat) tires on some of the Honda models. The PAX tire is a Michelin tire that gets about half the tread wear of a normal Michelin (25 to 30 k vs. 50 to 60k miles of wear), costs five times as much, and takes all day to change a set of four. The PAX tire is extremely hard to balance and comes with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that is very difficult to work with. Also, if you have PAX tires on your car, then your car does not come equipped with a spare tire. Not only that, nobody carries or can install the PAX tire except a Honda dealership (there is one exception to that in the Bay Area). Then, once you arrive at the dealer, the PAX tires may not be in stock and will have to be ordered, which could take days. I have just spent the last three weeks trying to have two PAX tires installed, balanced and the monitoring system calibrated correctly on my 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring. None of the problems were disclosed when I purchased the car. So when I wanted to change the two front tires on my Odyssey and expected it to be done in half an hour at the local tire dealer, I received a big shock. It has now taken over three weeks and the job is still not right.
It all started when I went to a tire dealer that sells Michelin Tires to buy two replacements. I was told that the PAX tire could only be changed at a place with techs certified to operate the very dangerous $15,000 PAX tire installation machine. The only place they knew of was a Honda Dealership. I received an insurance quote from the dealer of $1,491 ($1,116 for two tires plus labor of $375) and take up to 3 hours per tire depending on the tech that did the job (fast is considered 1.5 hours/tire)! Also, they told me, I would have to leave the car for the day and rent a car. It gets worse! I called to make sure they had the tires in stock. They said they did and to go ahead and bring the car in. After renting a car and returning, home, I called to ask what time I could pick it up. They said three days because the tires had to be ordered. That�s right, three days and this was after I was told that they had the tires at the dealership.
If I am having this much trouble here in the Bay Area (Oakland/San Francisco) then what about other locations, like Nevada. I called Honda to seek information and see what the options were there. Jose Acosta of Honda of America said there are no facilities in Nevada and that I would have to get the car back to California. OK, the PAX can be driven 120 miles at 50 miles/hr but since there is no spare, after the 120 miles, I would have to have a tow or leave it. Then on top of that I would have to wait for the tires to arrive at the dealership before they could be installed. Great vacation? �What about the towing charges�, I asked? Jose said that Honda would probably take care of the charges. That�s reassuring, convenient too??? With the PAX tire, No Way!!! Convenient, you bet???
I have called Honda of America many times to see if there is a problem with changing from the PAX system to conventional tires and rims? Jose Acosta wouldn�t say but he did say that Honda of American would not allow it�s dealerships to change them over. He told me that since he is not a tech he could not tell me why and that I should call the dealership. I told him that I had called and that they did not have an answer. I suggested that he call and he said he would and then he said that the dealersip would probably not know. �But wait�, I said, �You just told me to call and ask them, are you saying nobody at Honda knows how the Odyssey Touring works?� He had no answer.
The PAX tires are a major disappointment and I will not buy any car that has them installed. The PAX is short on wear, very expensive, and, assuming you can find the tires, machine and tech to install them, time consuming and difficult to replace. Is this the wave of the future? Convenient? No way!!!...read morehide

- Very nice looking van, and comfortable ride
- Bad gas mileage. Lots of problems.
Very dissappointed with the 2007 Odyssey. We had a '87 Odyssey with 120,000 plus miles, which we absolutely loved and traded it in for the new '07. We have had problems with both rear doors, very hard to open. You have to pull very hard. Dealer informed us we should be thankful, our door handles are easier to open then some of the new ones on the lot. Lucky Us!!!
The gear shift going from reverse to drive and park to drive does not engage properly. The dealer told us there could be up to a 30 SECOND DELAY before it engages. Can you believe that. I asked them when backing up out of a parking space or my driveway, I need to sit in the middle of the street and wait a full 30 seconds before switching into drive??? Totally unacceptable and a bunch of baloney!!!! I have a feeling this is a problem in many of the 2007 Odysseys, and will be interesting to see if there are many out there with this same issue.
Gas mileage is also poor.
The quality of this model is definitely not the usual Honda quality.
This is our fourth Honda, and it has been a huge dissappointment!!!...read morehide

- Appearance seems o.k., but that's the only pro!
- Bad Fuel consumption (14MPG), High Priced for Value, Noisy and Rattles!
I bought this van thinking it has good mileage as stated in sticker (19/26 MPG), but only gets 14 MPG in city and 22 MPG in highway. I believe that false advertising here is present. The value of this van is overpriced because for the defects and overall satisfaction not there, there is no way that it fits in the luxury range of a price ($40,000). The noisy ride and full of rattles is the last thing I'm going to take from it. I am going to trade it and get the leading brand in vans before much more depreciation sets in!...read morehide

- It's a Honda!
- WHINE FROM TRANSMISSION, MISLEADING MILEAGE, RATTLES!
SINCE I OWNED THIS ODYSSEY, PROBLEMS AFTER PROBLEMS HAVE APPEARED! RATTLES BECAME LOUDER AND DEALER CAN'T FIX. WHINE FROM TRANNY, DEALER SAYS IT IS NORMAL AND FUEL CONSUMPTION IS LESS THAN THE STICKER ADVERTISED 20/28 MPG, LIKE 14/19 MPG. IFTHE TRANNY GOES OUT, I'M GOING TO SELL THIS ODYSSEY AND GET A DODGE CARAVAN WHICH SELLS LESS THAN A HONDA AND SEE MANY RUNNING ON THE ROAD!...read morehide
