Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.

Owner Reports

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Jim O., LA (2007 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"Took vehicle to shop due to loud whining / humming noise from the steering pump after driving for about 1+ hours. The Honda dealer changed out the power steering pump 3 times while still under warranty. Finally I located a TSB (technical service bulletin) that indicated Honda was aware of the problem which was caused by a defective steering fluid reservoir. I had to bring this to their attention to fix the problem, but many other customers got taken per vehicle forums. This vehicle also had to have the front drive axles replaced due to clicking noise, even though the CV boots had no damage or cracks."

"The pump had to be replaced in 2012"

Anonymous, OH (2007 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"I had loud whining noises coming from my PS pump for several years. The Honda dealer replaced several O rings to address leakage before informing me this year that I actually needed a new PS pump and hoses. The problem was misdiagnosed while I had an extended warranty that would have covered a new PS pump and hoses. Further, I asked for a goodwill adjustment in 2018 since there had been a TSB on Odyssey PS pumps. After many emails and phone calls, I was informed that no goodwill adjustment was possible. I have owned my Honda since 2007, maintained in regularly, driven it carefully, with no accidents, and am disappointed that Honda was not willing to cover this expense for me. I have since changed Honda dealers and have found one that is more reasonable and trustworthy. My former dealer (Sussman Honda) was asking $1335 for this work. I had the exact work done at Freed Honda for $840. The lack of corporate responsibility for the PS issue was troubling, and I am repulsed by the huge profit margin that Sussman Honda apparently has on repairs such as these."

"Both sliding door rollers failed in succession. Driver's side got stuck open, while we were away from home. I had to cut cable to force the door to close, so we could drive the vehicle. Once you cut the drive cable, the whole motor has to be replaced. We currently do not use that door, until I can find the time to replace the motor.

"Right and left slide doors would not operate remotely or from dashboard control. After two days without starting the car, the battery became discharged from a constant current drain. Removing a fuse stopped the battery drain but doors were still inoperable from the remote on dash control. When repaired, the left door would stop about one foot from closure and return to the open position but nothing could be seen in the tracks that was inhibiting the closure. This happened when the car was on downward grade but not on an upward grade. When level it happened 50% of the time."

Had to spend $800 to get 2 sliding doors fixed. and recently, started having problems again with one of the doors. But the problem was actively happening when I brought to dealership. They told me most likely ANOTHER part went on the door, not the newly replaced roller. So back to just using one sliding door on van.

Kyle T., MO (2007 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"This particular vehicle had problems from the beginning of my ownership. Towards the end of this car's life, my car broke down and had to be towed to a repair facility. This problem turned out to be an alternator problem and I paid $700 to replace the alternator. This fixed the alternator problem but three weeks later, I was returning from a visit to a town a couple of hours away when the car failed again. I again called a tow truck and I was towed to a repair facility. This turned out to be the end of this car's useful life; the engine had failed and it would cost $4000 - $8000 to fix it. The repair facility wasn't sure of the exact cause of the failure but guessed that it might have been a timing belt failure. Since I decided not to spend the money for the repair, I did not want them to dismantle the engine since I didn't want to spend the money. I still own this vehicle but will probably junk it out since the engine no longer runs. It was very frustrating to have spent $700 on a new alternator just to have the engine fail three weeks later. This vehicle is the absolute worst car I have ever owned."
