2008 Honda Odyssey Touring Left Front Angle
A recall for approximately 344,000 2007-2008 Honda Odyssey minivans is being issued for a problem with those vehicles' Vehicle Stability Assist system (VSA) which can result in sudden, hard braking without the driver depressing the brake pedal, and without the rear brake lights illuminating. The culprit is the vehicle yaw sensor. The yaw sensor may not properly reset itself after being driven under certain conditions, resulting in the sudden release of pressure into the system, increasing the risk of a crash. Honda claims it is not aware of any crashes or injuries as a result of the VSA malfunction.
2012 Honda Odyssey Front Right Three
Several thousand units of the Honda Odyssey minivan are being recalled for unsafe liftgates, while the same flaw that caused the Surbaru Legacy and Outback recall last week is responsible for recalled 2012 Nissan Versa and 2012 Nissan Altimas.

Summary
HONDA HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA OF A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007 AND 2008 ODYSSEY AND ELEMENT PASSENGER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JULY 28, 2006 AND AUGUST 21, 2008. AIR CAN ENTER THE VSA MODULAR PUMP DURING AN INITIAL SELF-CHECK PROCESS THAT OCCURS SHORTLY AFTER EACH TIME THE ENGINE IS STARTED. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR ENOUGH AIR TO ENTER THE SYSTEM TO RESULT IN A BRAKE PEDAL THAT FEELS SOFT OR LOWER TO THE FLOOR.
Consequences
IF THE OWNER DOES NOT HAVE ANY BRAKE SERVICE OR MAINTENANCE PERFORMED OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS OR YEARS, THE SYSTEM CAN CONTINUE TO ACCUMULATE ENOUGH AIR TO AFFECT BRAKING PERFORMANCE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy
HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNER AND HONDA DEALERS WILL REPAIR THE VSA MODULATOR BY REMOVING ANY EXISTING AIR IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM THEN APPLY SEALANT AND CAPS TO PREVENT AIR FROM ENTERING THE BRAKE SYSTEM FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON MAY 3, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009.
