Honda has issued a recall for its Odyssey minivan, a model that is produced at the Japanese automaker’s Alabama factory, for a problem that may cause unexpected braking. The recall covers more than 344,000 Odysseys, model years 2007 and 2008. In June, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into complaints of unexpected braking on the minivan. In its recall notice sent to NHTSA, Honda blamed the problem on a combination of system components and software that could cause the vehicle to “suddenly and unexpectedly brake hard, and without illuminating the brake lights, increasing the risk of a crash from behind.” Parts to fix the problem will not be available until next spring, according to Honda. In the interim, the automaker said it will send owners a letter instructing them how to prevent unintended braking.
