Honda to recall 204,500 vehicles over braking system problem

PanARMENIAN.Net - Honda has announced plans to recall 204,500 of its CR-V, Odyssey and Acura RDX vehicles from 2012 and 2013 due to an issue with the braking system, SlashGear reports.

When temperatures drop below freezing, a problem with one component could allow the driver to shift without pressing the brake first, something that hasn’t caused any issues, instead being discovered in an internal investigation.

The numbers break down to 59,000 2012 and 2013 Honda Odyssey minivans, 128,000 2012 and 2013 Honda CR-V SUVs, and 17,500 2013 Acura RDX vehicles. Those with an affected vehicle will have a component in the brake shift interlock system replaced with one that isn’t prone to failure in sub-freezing temperatures. According to Honda, no customers have complained or experienced any injuries from the problem.

Snail-mail notifications will go out to those with one of the affected vehicles some time in the middle of May.

This follows a recent recall over faulty airbags by the manufacturer, with the airbags coming from Takata Corporation. The airbags were made from 2000 to 2002, and concerned a problem with the inflators that could cause abnormal inflation when deployed. Toyota and Nissan were also forced to issue recalls over the same airbag problems.
