The Japanese automaker Honda is set to recall 410,000 cars in the United States due to complaints about braking system. 344,000 Odyssey models and 68,000 Element models made between 2007 and 2008 will be recalled. Overtime, brake pedals in these vehicles can become soft and must be pressed closer to the floor to stop the vehicle entirely, according the company. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported 3 car accidents as a result of the problem with minor injuries but no deaths.

Honda says that not all vehicles being recalled have been reported experiencing this problem, but the recall, they believe will demonstrate a desire to assure customers that all safety measure in the vehicles are responding appropriately. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by the car company and are urged not to repair the car until a letter arrives, as the necessary repair parts will not yet be available. Owners should receive letters by late April. Honda believes the braking problem will be solved by repair.
