2007 Honda Odyssey

wsurfwsurf Posts: 15
Just did start looking into a possible future purchase of an 07 Odyssey. However, I was disappointed to learn that in order to get leather interior seats that i would have to purchase the EX-L model at the minimum and this comes with a moon roof (which i have absolutely no interest in).
We have a 2003 EX with Leather seats (all of them!!) and NO Moon roof which we are very happy with. Did i read the specs wrong?? Is there an 07 Odyssey with leather seating and NO Moon roof??

    Not from the factory.

    You could buy an EX and have leather added. If you do so, be sure the installer knows his stuff about side airbags.

    Hi, I have the '07 Ody EX-L w/ power sliding door and the past few days it has been making noise when it closes :mad: . Has any one run into this problem? If so, did you lube it and where? Thanks.

    Does anyone know if Honda deleted the floor storage lock in the 2007 EX-L? Ours does not appear to have one.

    Just don't use the moonroof. It would drive up the cost to make individual options like moonroofs, so consider it 6 of one or a half-dozen of the other to get a couple of things you didn't want in order to get things you did.

    I wanted a moonroof in my Accord, but to get one, I had to get a power seat and heated mirrors - things I never use.
  • I am interested in buying a Honda Odyssey with DVD/Navigation. I was told that the MSRP is 35,490 and the profit is 2800. They are willing to negotiate some but what is the going price really. Has anyone bought one recently and got a better deal in CA.

    Hi, makandjak,

    Here's a link to the Odyssey Buying and Leasing Experiences topic, which is a better place for your question -- post your question there and you're bound to get a lot of feedback.

    Am looking for 2007 Ody in the Houston area. Can anyone help me?

    I just purchased a 2007 Odissey and can't stay in the car without feeling nausea and headaches. 3 other people felt the same but Honda claims" there is nothing wrong" and refuse to put me in another car or terminate my brand new lease. Has anyone else experienced this nightmare?

    My wife and I bought a new 07 Ody in January. We (especially she) love the van. It blew two fuses on the interior light circuit the first week. Since then we've had no problems except that the brakes feel mushy.

    There seems to be a lot of pedal travel before the brakes engage, and I sometimes feel like I need to pump the brake pedal, even though the van is stopping in a safe distance. It's not losing brake fluid and I've had it checked out at the dealer. They could find no problems and compared it with another brand new Odyssey. The service mgr took it for a test drive and said he experienced the same thing and understood what I was talking about, but that it was the same in the other van.

    I understand that there's nothing "mini" about an Odyssey. It's a lot of weight you're stopping, so it's not going to stop like my Civic. But I've driven heavier vehicles that at least gave the perception that they had better brakes.

    Has anyone else had this experience, or am I just nitpicking?

    Totally agree about the brakes - the '99 Odyssey didn't feel like the '07. Thought it was my imagination - only have 6500 miles on it. Glad to hear someone else has the same impression. Will tell dealer about it at next oil change during the coming week. We blew a fuse in one of the two 12v adaptors up front - have to get that fixed too.

    My A/C stopped wo6king, and it's been only 7months since I bought it and around 8k miles.

    Dealer says the condenser has a small hole now as it may been hit by a stone and it's not covered by warranty, quoted almost 1000 bucks.

    Any advise on how to deal with the dealer to convince him would help!!!
  • jchan2jchan2 Posts: 4,956
    wouldn't it be covered under the 3 year, 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty?

    I would get another dealer, as this clearly qualifies as a warranty repair. There is no way that a condenser would fail at this age, especially on a Honda. My A/C in both my Odyssey and Civic has worked flawlessly since day 1; this is DEFINITELY not normal.
  • chikusrichikusri Posts: 8
    Thanks for your reply.

    It should be covered under 3yr/36k warranty, but what he says is because it was hit by a stone it's not covered by warranty.

    I will need to see a different dealer, but I am not sure what to argue with them? Can I say what's the gaurantee that it was hit by a stone and not condenser defect?

    Rock damage to the AC condenser is a known problem with this model. Seems very sensitive to rock damage compared to the 1999-04. Unfortunately, no warranty for this bad design. Sometimes pleading will help. Check this link for more info.

    Thanks for the link.

    I took my odyssey to a different dealer, and he mentioned the same that this is not covered under warranty.

    Then I called up the Honda Customer Care and they took my request and gave me a reference number. And they asked the Dealer to call their Regional giving this reference number, somehow they agreed to cover this when the Sales Rep at the dealer talked to them.

    So, it's all covered and reimbursed to the dealer directly. Again thank you so much for your reply and please take a moment to post it on the on my behalf, because it doesn't allow me to register.

    Time to run to Homedepot and get that gutter gaurd/mesh...

    I bought my 2007 Odyssey last November and I am not very impressed already because I only put on about 4 KM and I had to bring to the Dealer's shop a few times already. First time they had to change the strut as they said it was leaking because it was making noise when I turned left. I bought it in the second time as it is still making a small noise when I turn left slowly again. The noise is not consistent though and they said they could not find out anything wrong. Took the test drive with the foreman and he said he found nothing wrong with it and there was nothing he could do. (: Now, I have to bring it in again for a wheel alignment. Not sure if anyone has these same problem.

    I bought a couple new vehicles from Toyota before I've never experienced any of these things before.

    Don't think, I will buy anything from Honda again. I was thinking of calling Honda Canada to express my unsatisfaction but not sure where to call.

    You are not alone (see the Odyssey Brakes forum). I'm having this problem with my '07 Ody Touring, but it's intermittent -- kind of like playing Russian Roulette, not knowing when the brakes are going to require standing on the pedal. Thus far I have been told that the required brake pedal pressure is within factory specs.

    Have you had a satisfactory resolution to your brake problem yet? If so, what was it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just came back from a 6500 mile trip around the US. The 2007 Touring Odyssey W/Nav was great, I averaged 23.2 MPG and had a full load with 3 children and 10 suitcases. Almost no wear on the PAX tires and absolutely no problems with the Van, everything worked as advertised. I did find during a routine oil change in Pa. that the dealers there will change the rubber on the PAX tires for $160 each.

    We seem to be mirroring the same issues. Dealer claims brakes are fine but somestimes they require lots of foot pressure in order to stop. Also blew a fuse in of the two 12v adaptors up front. And gas mileage still awful when doing a lot of local driving (14-16, up from 12-13 during the Winter here in New Jersey). Highway mileage and mixed highway and city averages 17-20. If only local mileage could do what the '99 did - 16-18 locally - I'd be much happier.
