Bought a 2007 certified honda odyssey exl with 32000 miles after 800 miles the transmission started slipping. Took it to honda and found out the turbine torque is bad. They are going to replace it at no cost. Lets see if thats the problem going in 2 days to get it fixed.
We have a 2007 Hondy Odyssey loaded, we bought new. It has 65000 miles, started acting funny about a month ago. Funky steering, goes loose then tight again, also a random strange sliding/thumping of the brake pedal, while driving, not constant but every time I drive it, it happens at least once. I take it to the Honda dealer and they say, the power steering has a leak in it and needs to be replaced, the transmission is slipping, the front brakes are bad, and the rear shocks are shot. They were suppose to call me back to see if they are going to help us with this, since we are past the waranty mileage. Its been 3 days and a weekend. I am hoping and praying, cuz this is a very pricy repair, especially for someone who still owes a lot of money on the van and just lost their job.
have a 2007 Odyssey that still has transmission issues with the torque converter. Honda America says that they are investigating but do not have an answer or fix to the problem
Just got my turbine torque fix on my 2007 odysey but it seems like ill be going back 2 get it check still has a problem.
good luck with Honda America. They have not been helpful.. keep complaining and call the 800 number to make a complaint at Honda America. The more people that call about this transmission problem will hopefully turn into a quicker fix. I will never buy another Odyssey with all the problems this one has had
Great this is my first Honda and was sooo excited, now it does that goofy slip between 40-20. I have had it 2 weeks.

I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey that I bought new in 2008. It only has 31,000 miles on it and I've been having the same transmission problem as most of you. I've had it in the shop 3 times now for the same problem. The first time it was in the did a "software update" that didn't help at all. The 2nd time they replaced the torque converter, that didn't help at all. The 3rd time they said "well they (meaning the tech) probably forgot to do a software update after they replaced the torque converter". So all they did the 3rd visit was again do a "software update", which didn't solve the problem either. SO now I have to take it in a 4th time.
I also had to have the power steering reservoir replaced and they fixed the soft brake issue.
I'm so frustrated at this point. I love my van but with all these issue I might trade it in. The problem is I don't like any other minivan.
Sounds like they are trying to blow you off until you hit 36K miles and are no longer under warranty...
I have been experiencing transmission issues on my 2007 Odyssey as well. It isn't slipping, it seems to be shifting gears when it wants to. I don't know if that is normal or not. It does seem to spudder at the same spot in a low speed in my community. This is our first Honda, I was so happy at purchase, b/c of the rave reviews about Japanese made autos. I've ran into owners who had nothing but good to say about their Odysseys, so naturally I bought one (used). Now I read the horror stories on this site, especially when torque converter & software replacements make the problems worse. Are there any success stories? Should I take my van in for a check of the transmission? Isn't there enough people on this site to file a class action lawsuit since your problems have not been solved.
just bought a used 2007 Odyssey, had trans slip on the way home from dealer.going to change the transmission fluid first, as it hasn't been changed since new. saw another site that recommends changing the trans fluid every 12000 miles. or each yr.
this car has a history of trans slips and bucks at low speeds, the adventure begins. the good news is that it doesn't happen on every Odyssey out there so there must be a weak link in the parts sub contractor quality control. kinda like throwing the dice if u get a lemon or not. and if the percentage of bad trans is low, Honda doesn't get excited about fixing it.
I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey that I purchased used as a certified used vehicle from a Honda dealer in 2010. This van was purchased for my 3 children, all are disabled. Right away, within the first week of owning this van we had the juttering issues. An update fixed that. 2 months later the a/c condesnor needed to be replaced. 6 months later the power steering pump replaced. 1 year later alternator replaced and power steering replaced again. Yesterday morning I noticed the wrench indicator light on the dashboard was on, the engine light was on, and the "D" (drive) was flashing. I had no choice but to drive because my children had their appointments with therapy. While I was backing up I did notice a white/grey like smoke coming up from the muffler. Are you F**ing kidding me. I take care of my kids all day, I can't afford this mess. How does someone who put less than 6,000 miles a year on a vehicle have this many problems. I thought Honda was a reliable car.
