WASHINGTON (AP) - Honda Motor Co. says it plans to recall an
undetermined number of vehicles because of brake fluid leaks that
could lead to weaker braking power, the same issue that led Toyota
Motor Corp. to recall 1.5 million vehicles.
     
Honda says the recall affects certain 2005-2007 model year Acura
RL sedans and Honda Odyssey minivans from the 2005 to early 2007
model year.
     
Honda says it does not immediately know how many vehicles will
be covered by the recall.
     
There have been no injuries or accidents tied to the problem.
     
The Japanese automaker says it plans to officially notify the
U.S. government of the recall on Thursday.
