Honda announced Tuesday morning that they are recalling more than 410,000 Odyssey minivans and Element small trucks due to a braking problem that could make the vehicle hard to stop.
In a statement, Honda said, brake pedals can feel "soft," and they must be pressed closer to the floor to stop the vehicles. Left unrepaired, the problem could cause loss of braking power and possibly a crash.
There have been three crashes due to the problem. There have been no deaths. Honda also stated, "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."
The problem involves air getting into the hydraulic brake lines. The air bubble can cause a loss of braking power.
According to the AP, Honda is still preparing a list of affected vehicles. After April 19th, you will find the list at www.recalls.honda.com
