Additional information:

Among the 53 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November, comes news of the following:

American Honda Motor Co. (“Honda”) has recalled an estimated 64,785 model year 2017-2019 Acura MDX, 2017-2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid, 2018-2019 Honda HR-V and Honda Odyssey and 2016 Honda HR-V vehicles.

The rear brake caliper pistons in the recalled vehicles 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.”

According to the NHTSA, a reduction of braking performance increases the risk of a crash.

Registered owners will be notified, and Honda or Acura dealers will bleed the brakes, free of charge to fix this problem. The recall is expected to begin December 17, 2018. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s designations for this recall are C31 and L30.
