The recall bug could strike Honda again as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened another investigation concerning the Odyssey minivan. Honda has already recalled 59,000 Odysseys from the 2012 and 2013 model years due to a shift interlock issue, and another 320,000 of the minivans from 2003-04 are being investigated for faulty airbags. Now, TheDetroitBureau.com is reporting that NHTSA is taking a look at the 2007-08 Odyssey for a problem associated with the brakes.

This investigation reportedly includes 343,000 Odysseys that could be suffering from an unexpected application of the brakes. According to the article, at least 22 people have reported such an issue, and in five cases, dealers found a trouble code associated with the steering angle sensor – part of the anti-lock brake and stability control systems. There is still no indication as to whether or not this will become a recall, but Honda has already recalled more than 1.8 million units this year.

      Why do people spread so much hate filled propaganda in these types of topics? Does it ever occur to anyone this is a very popular model of minivan, there for the numbers are going to be big, hell even I know three families with Odysseys. With the exception of Chrysler neither Ford nor GM has had consistent success in this segment. Same goes for any other popular models with investigations and recalls. Stuff happens. They are just trying to be thorough. Chrysler just recalled nearly half a million cars why because they were popular selling models with similar faults.

      It is always a little 'inaccurate' when the auto manufacturer takes 100% of the heat for a recall or an issue. Most of the recalls for ANY manufacturer involve a small number of OEM component mfrs like Magna, TRW, etc that make the SAME parts for several different auto brands. I agree the auto maker is responsible for QC and making sure the components assembled work as intended but to say Toyota, Honda et al are lessening their quality is not 100% accurate. All manufacturers now are very close in actual problems per 100 vehicles and usually those problems are from their suppliers. I do think that the additional 'complication' of today's vehicles and required safety components play a large role i.e. above story - would a steer angle sensor even have been an issue in 1989? Still, despite all this, the 'worst' cars of today would blow away the 'most' reliable cars of the past i.e. when a 1984 Camry was supposedly bulletproof, it would be fair to poor in reliability in today's world.

        A half million though? Looks like Honda just took the lead from Toyota for the 2013 Recall Crown?

      What a coincidence, Chrysler recall 282k minivans for airbags issues, see what I mean with all these stupid hate filled comments, stuff happens like I stated in my post below. That's nearly 750k worth of Chrysler recalls this week and some of you will still have pissing contest about it: http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/07/06/chrysler-recalling-minivans-for-airbag-defect/

      Is anyone investigating the NHTSA? Do Toyota, Honda, Kia and H have paid shills/commenters that turn up in all these articles about recalls? It certainly seems so. For example they were blaming all elderly American drivers for the unintended speeding crashes, and then Toyota pops with an amount in excess of one billion to settle. Now they curse at anyone's comment that does not seem favorable to any of that group.

        I'm sure there will be people on here who vote you down, but I wouldn't be surprised that some of these are PR people "devoted" to keeping their jobs.

          A reputation that they earned when Detroilet was thinking they were invincible even when producing crap. Then there is the whole UAW quality thing, or lack thereof.
