Japanese manufacturer Honda is recalling nearly 250,000 vehicles in service worldwide, because of braking system problems.
Honda Recalled List
According to AFP, quoting a company release, 183,576 cars are in the U.S. and the rest from other parts of the world. The Japanese American Division explained that just in U.S. will be recalled approximately 101,000 Honda Pilot SUVs, 60,000 Acura MDX SUVs and 21,000 Acura RL sedans made in 2005, and about 800 Acura MDX cars made in 2006.
Honda Braking Problem
The press release says the recall is made in order to check and eliminate a possible malfunction found on the assisted stabilization system from electric reasons. This problem can slow down the system without having drivers pushing the brake pedal. If the driver brakes while the fault occurrs, braking is more sudden and accidents may occur.
Some say this is just a conspiracy against Asian manufacturers, all we know is, it’s called fresh news. Toyota went through a similar problem a years ago and managed to get back on its feet, let’s see how Honda manages this issue.
