The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened an investigation into complaints about unexpected braking on the Honda Odyssey minivan. The preliminary evaluation, which could lead to a recall, covers nearly 344,000 Odysseys, model years 2007 and 2008. The minivan is produced at the Japanese automaker’s factory in Talladega County, Ala. According to NHTSA, it has received 22 complaints alleging incidents of unexpected braking in these models. Some say the minivan suddenly applies the brakes by itself while the driver is applying the accelerator, causing the vehicle’s speed to drop by as much as 30 miles per hour in a short period of time. NHTSA says no injuries or crashes have been reported.
