Approximately 344,000 Honda Odyssey minivans and 68,000 Element crossovers from the 2007-2008 model years are being recalled in the United States to address a problem with the brakes.
The Japanese automaker said that it had received a number of customer complaints of brake pedals that feel “soft” or that gradually needed more pressure to work. Honda added that the in the affected vehicles, this condition tends to “very slowly increase over time”.
“While only a miniscule amount of air can enter the system during each check, over a period of months or years, the air will accumulate and can result in the “soft brake pedal” or “low brake pedal” condition symptoms associated with this issue,” said Honda in a statement.
The recall is expected to begin at the end of April.
This latest issue for Honda comes only a month after the maker recalled more than 430,000 vehicles over an airbag inflation problem.
