Honda Recall: Faulty Brakes just like Toyota

Honda has announced the recall of 412,000 vehicles in the U.S. a result of faulty brakes — something that has been a huge problem for over 8 million Toyota’s. The models affected are the 2007 and 2008 Odyssey minivans and the Element SUV.

In a statement issued by the Japanese automaker, it said that the brake pedal can become soft over time — drivers will have to push the brake pedal to the floor in order to stop the vehicle. Honda also said that if the issue is not repaired, then the brakes could fail.

Voice of America reports that Honda spokesman Chris Martin said that there have been at least three crashes — thankfully there were only minor injuries. The reason for the faulty brakes is due to air leaking into the system,

The is now the second recall in as many months for Honda, last month the automaker had to recall 437,000 vehicles due to problems with the airbags. This will not do any good for Japanese automakers, as the U.S. is now taking a much closer look at the safety of their vehicles.
