Article by Anita Panait, on March 18, 2013

Honda Motor Co Ltd. will recall almost 250,000 vehicles around the world due to braking problems. Seven Honda models – including sedans, minivans and sports utility vehicles -- are affected by the recall. Honda will recall the Acura RL sedan, Acura MDX crossover SUV and the Honda Pilot SUV in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

Honda will recall the Legend sedan and the Odyssey, Elysion, and Stepwgn minivans in Japan. According to Honda spokeswoman Tomoko Takemori, all vehicles covered in the recall were built between 2004 and 2005 except for the Stepwgn, which was produced between 2005 and 2006. Takemori disclosed that the stability assist system in the vehicles may malfunction while the brake could deploy even when the pedal is not being pressed.

She added that the affected vehicles may also brake more strongly than intended when the system malfunctions. Takemori noted that no accidents or injuries have been reported due to the problem. The recall will affect around 183,500 Pilot, MDX and RL vehicles in the US and five other countries as well as 57,000 vehicles -- including about 42,566 Odyssey minivans -- in Japan.
