Honda Odyssey and Mitsubishi Galant recalled
The American-built Honda Odyssey is turning out to be rather problematic, as a U.S. recall for brakes is issued. Also on the recall path is the American-built Mitsubishi Galant.
Alongside the U.S. recall, the UAE dealer for Honda has announced that a limited number of 2007-2008 Honda Odyssey models are subject to a service campaign due to an issue with “air entering the Vehicle Stability Actuator (VSA) modulator resulting in a soft brake feel.” The service campaign is limited to only 245 units in the UAE. The dealer will contact the owners of the affected minivans and invite them to bring their vehicle in to complete the approved repair.
Meanwhile, Mitsubishi has issued a U.S. recall of 2,307 US-built Galant models from the 2010 model year. The recall is due to “insufficient plating on the automatic transmission oil cooler pipe assembly, which may lead to corrosion. If the pipe develops a hole, transmission fluid could leak, creating a potential fire hazard if there is an ignition source.” U.S. dealers will inspect the aft oil cooler pipe assembly and replace it if they find it has insufficient plating to prevent corrosion. This service will be free. The UAE dealer, which ships in Galants from USA, is quiet on this, but corrosion issues should be limited in this region anyway.
