Honda is recalling more than 344,000 model year 2007-2008 Honda Odyssey vehicles manufactured from August 8, 2006 through September 8, 2008.

Due to a combination of system components and software, the Vehicle Safety Assist System (VSA) may apply the brakes unexpectedly.

The vehicle may suddenly and unexpectedly brake hard, and without illuminating the brake lights, increasing the risk of a crash from behind.

The parts required to repair the affected Odyssey vehicles will not be available until the spring of 2014. Honda will send owners an interim letter notifying them of the issue and instructing them on how to prevent unintended braking. A second notification will be sent when the parts become available.

For further information on this recall, contact Honda toll-free at 800-999-1009. Honda's campaign ID number for this recall is JC5.
