Honda Recalls Odyssey and Element

Honda Recalls 2007 to 2008 Odyssey and Element

Posted: Mar. 17, 2010
Honda Motor Co. is recalling more than 410,000 vehicles -- 344,000 2007 to 2008 Honda Odyssey minivans and 68,000 2007 to 2008 Element compact SUVs. The recall is due to a defect in the vehicles’ antilock brake modulator, which is part of its Vehicle Stability Assist system.

Cars.com explains “Air can slowly enter the part and cause issues over time. The fault directly affects the brake pedal feel and height. Over time, the pedals can start to feel ‘soft’ and the height can decrease.” If not fixed, the condition can make the vehicles difficult to stop.

Honda Spokesman Chris Martin told the Associated Press that The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported three crashes due to the problem – with only minor injuries.

Cars.com, however, reports more incidents: “Honda did not post the number of complaints, but we checked NHTSA’s website, and as of today we found 140 complaints for 2007-2008 Odysseys for brakes, a majority for the faded-brake issue. Ten of those included crashes, with seven reported injuries. There were 17 complaints with one crash and injury for the 2007-2008 Element. We did find at least one duplicate complaint (which we didn’t count). However, we didn’t cross-check all 157 complaints.”

According to Edmunds, “Customer notification of the recall will start in late April. Honda said owners can also check if their vehicle requires repair by going online or by calling (800) 999-1009 and selecting option 4.”
