(Newser) – Honda is recalling some 412,000 vehicles after complaints that their brakes go soft over time as air gets into the braking and stability system. The move affects 344,000 Odyssey minivans and 68,000 Element SUVs for the 2007 and ‘08 model years, Reuters reports. Only minor injuries have occurred due to the defects, the automaker says.
