Units Affected:
471,820

Affected Component: Service brakes, hydraulic:foundation components:master cylinder.

Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 odyssey and acura rl vehicles. Brake fluid containing polymers is used that acts as a lubricant for certain brake system components. If replacement brake fluid is used that does not contain such polymers, or that contains only small amounts, a part of the rubber seal located at the rear of the brake master cylinder may become dry, and the seal may curl during movement of the piston. If this occurs, a small amount of brake fluid could slowly leak from the seal into the brake booster. .

Conequence: A leak of brake fluid could lead to a change in brake pedal feel and overtime a degradation in braking performance increasing the risk of a crash. .

Remedy: Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder seal free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during december 2010. Owners may contact honda at 1-800-999-1009. .

Units Affected:

Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2005 pilot vehicles manufactured july 29, 2004, through august 29, 2005; model year 2005-2006 acura mdx vehicles manufactured september 16, 2004, through september 22, 2005; and model year 2005 acura rl vehicles manufactured march 1, 2004, through june 29, 2005. An electrical capacitor may have been damaged during the manufacturing of the vehicle stability assist (vsa) control module causing intermittent, automatic, minor brake application. However, if the driver applies the brakes while the vsa is malfunctioning, the vehicle may come to an abrupt stop. Additionally, due to a loose ground connection, certain model year 2005 pilots have a vsa system that may apply partial brake force, without the illumination of the brake lights, whether or not the driver is using the brakes. .

Conequence: Sudden inadvertent braking, especially without illumination of the brake lights, may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. .

Remedy: Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a dealer of their respective brand. The dealer will install a partial wiring harness containing a capacitor for the vsa modulator, free of charge. The affected model year 2005 pilots will have their ground connection tightened. The recall began on april 22, 2013. Honda owners may contact honda automobile customer service at 1-800-999-1009, and select option 4 or go to www. Recalls. Honda.
