Three Acura and Honda crossover SUVs and a minivan are subject to a new recall to address a problem with their braking system. Honda filed paperwork with the NHTSA earlier this month, according to documents released Monday, that covers a recall for the Acura MDX, MDX Sport Hybrid, Honda HR-V, and Odyssey minivan.
The recall surrounds insufficient coating on the rear brake caliper pistons on all four vehicles. Without proper coating, gas pockets may form, which reduces brake performance and increases the risk of a crash. Honda did not say if it is aware of any crashes or injuries related to the faulty parts.
