Honda is recalling 344,000 Odyssey minivans of the 2007-2008 model years to fix a problem, which can cause the vehicle to suddenly brake.
The Japanese automaker said that a software and parts problem could cause hydraulic pressure to build in the braking system after an engine restart. The buildup can suddenly be released, causing heavy and unexpected braking without the brake lights coming on.
Honda said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.
The automaker says they will replace a “yaw sensor” but, unfortunately, the part will not be available until early next year.
In the meantime, Honda issued instructions online on how to drive to prevent the problem from occurring.
