NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Honda said Tuesday it is recalling more than 400,000 vehicles in the United States after consumers complained of brake pedals feeling “soft.”
The Japanese automaker will recall 344,000 Odyssey minivans and 68,000 Element crossover vehicles in the 2007-2008 model years to fix the vehicle stability assist modulators. Some of those modulators were assembled in a way that could allow air to enter, Honda said in a release.
The trapped air could cause the brake pedal to fall closer to the floor before the car stops, and in affected vehicles the problem tends to increase over time.
Not all of the cars involved in the recall may have this issue, but Honda is including all units that could possibly be affected.
