Honda has announced a recall for 2007 and 2008 Odyssey minivans and Element crossovers. Over time, the braking systems VSA modulator can build up air and lead to a soft pedal feel and compromised braking performance.
While a very low percentage of vehicles are potentially effected, Honda is trying to avoid becoming the next Toyota by being proactive with recalls. A total of 344,000 Odyssey models and 68,000 Elements are being recalled, a number which as already impacted Honda’s stock on the Nikkei index.
It was just a few weeks ago that Honda recalled a boatload of Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V and Acura TL models to correct a faulty airbag inflator module. Here’s hoping that both Honda and Toyota have finished up with recalls for the near future.
