Honda and Acura Recall Nearly 125,000 Vehicles Due to Potential Brake Failure

Honda and Acura are recalling almost 125,000 vehicles across numerous model lines due to a part in the brake system that was potentially improperly assembled, which could lead to brake failure. The affected vehicles are the 2020-2021 Honda Civic, 2020-2023 Honda Ridgeline, 2021-2023 Honda Passport, 2021-2022 Honda Pilot, and the 2020 Acura DMX. Honda stated that the brake master cylinder may be improperly fastened to the brake booster during production.

The tie rod fastener is the specific problem point. Honda said that if the part was improperly assembled, that could result in loose or missing tie rod nuts. In that scenario, when applying the brakes, a bending load can be placed on the brake booster tie rod struts, which in turn could cause the tie rod studs to break. This then allows the brake mater cylinder to separate from the brake booster, which could result in diminished or lost brake function. Honda received a report of brake failure on a 2021 Pilot, which prompted the investigation. According to Honda, no crashes or injuries due to this issue have been reported, but there have been warranty claims on the issue.

Notifications are scheduled to be sent to owners starting in August. Honda will inspect and replace any missing nuts, and if any brake booster assembly components are damaged, they will be replaced.
