The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a recall on certain Honda Odyssey vehicles. The Office of Defects Investigation has issued a statement regarding potential failures in the hydraulic brake lines affecting certain 2009 Honda Odyssey vehicles.
It was determined that incorrect front brake hoses were installed and the hose can develop a leak of the brake fluid, increasing the risk of a crash. Information about the models affected can be found through the NHTSA website created for consumer information.
Automobile accidents can be the result of a driver’s negligence, but in many instances, automobiles have defects that can lead to wrecks; often, product defects in cars don’t cause the collision, but can increase the severity of injury to vehicle occupants.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, a thorough investigation involves analyzing the scene of the incident, as well as a proper analysis and investigation into the vehicles involved and the dynamics of the accident and causes of injury.
