Honda Recalls Vehicles for Brake Issues

By Staff Writer November 28, 2018

American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 64,785 2017-19 Acura MDX, 2017-18 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid, 2018-19 Honda HR-V and Honda Odyssey, and 2016 Honda HR-V vehicles.

The rear brake caliper pistons may have an insufficient coating, causing gas pockets to form, reducing brake performance. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

Owners will be notified, and Honda or Acura dealers will bleed the brakes, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Dec. 17.

Honda's numbers for this recall are C31 and L30.
