Now HONDA also wants to get into the act...

US Honda Recall... <- Click!

Honda to recall 412,000 vehicles in U.S. for brakes

DETROIT (Reuters)

- Honda Motor Co will recall about 412,000 vehicles in the United States to address the risk that brake pedals may feel soft and slip closer to the floor over time, the company said on Tuesday.


The recall covers about 344,000 Odyssey minivans and 68,000 Element SUVs for the 2007 and 2008 model years and
follows customer complaints over the issue, Honda said in a statement.

On some of the vehicles, air could enter the unit that controls braking and stability system, which may result in the "soft brake pedal" or "low brake pedal" after months or years, the company said.

Honda spokesman Chris Martin said several crashes and three minor injuries have been reported to the Transportation Highway Safety Administration regarding the problem.

"Although not all vehicles being recalled are affected by this issue, we are recalling all possible units to assure all customers that their vehicles will perform correctly," Honda said.

The recall comes at a time of public and regulatory scrutiny over vehicle safety issues in the wake of damaging safety problems involving Toyota Motor Corp vehicles.

Honda Odyssey in Singapore unaffected by the recall

DETROIT: While it was more bad news for American motorists as
Honda Motor on Wednesday recalled 412,000 vehicles in the United States
including the Odyssey - the country's best-selling minivan - Singapore
owners can rest easy, unaffected by the recall.

According to Honda distributor Kah Motor's product manager Vincent Ng,
the Honda Odyssey here is a "completely different car, except in name"
from the model found in the US. Their engines, chassis components and
exterior design are different, and the Odysseys in Singapore are
manufactured in Japan, he said.

The recall, due to a brake-system flaw, includes 344,000 Odysseys and
68,000 Elements from the 2007 and 2008 model years. The Element is not
sold in Singapore.

Honda said in a statement that over time, brake pedals can feel "soft".
Left unrepaired, the problem could cause loss of braking power and
possibly a crash, spokesman Chris Martin said. The car-maker has traced
the problem to the device that powers the electronic stability control
system.

The safety recall is Honda's second in two months: Last month, it
recalled 952,118 vehicles globally due to air bag problems.

This comes on the heels of Toyota's recalls of over 8 million vehicles
worldwide, Nissan's recall of 540,000 vehicles and Ford asking owners of
17,600 cars to bring them in for a software update.

One news and comment portal, 24/7 Wall St, remarked after Honda's news:
"Every car sold in America, and perhaps the rest of the world, is broken
or dangerous to drive so it seems ... Now that almost every car company
is finding defects in its products, the Toyota trouble seems nearly
commonplace."

It added that with regulators in the wake of the Toyota example likely
to get aggressive over defects, auto firms are under pressure to find
flaws early and report them quickly.

AutoPacific Inc analyst Stephanie Brinley concurred: "Automakers are
going to err on the side of caution right now. No one at this point
wants to be accused of not reacting quickly."
