Four Honda models and one Acura are being recalled due to a brake problem that could result in the brakes failing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has filed documents stating that up to 124,077 vehicles could be affected. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by August 7, 2023.

Honda and Acura have announced a recall for several models due to a brake issue that may compromise the strength and functionality of the brakes. The recall includes the Honda Civic (2020–2021), Passport (2021–2023), Pilot (2021–2022), and Ridgeline (2020–2023), as well as the Acura MDX (2020).

According to the official recall report submitted to the NHTSA, the problem arises from the incorrect assembly of the tie rod fastener that connects the brake master cylinder and the brake booster. When the brakes are applied, the tie rod studs may break, resulting in the separation of the master cylinder from the brake booster. This manufacturing flaw could weaken or completely disable the brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.

Although Honda has received two warranty claims related to the issue, there have been no reports of accidents or injuries. Owners can visit the NHTSA recalls website to check if their vehicle is included in the recall. Recall notices will be sent out by Honda in August.
