Honda Pilot Recall, Acura MDX Recall, Acura RL Recall, Sudden Brake Danger

Honda Recalls Pilots, Acura MDX and Acura RL vehicles
Sudden accidental brake danger
Report Receipt Date: MAR 14, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V092000 
Component(s): SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC , TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 183,576 

Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
SUMMARY:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2005 Pilot vehicles manufactured July 29, 2004, through August 29, 2005; model year 2005-2006 Acura MDX vehicles manufactured September 16, 2004, through September 22, 2005; and model year 2005 Acura RL vehicles manufactured March 1, 2004, through June 29, 2005. An electrical capacitor may have been damaged during the manufacturing of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) control module causing intermittent, automatic, minor brake application. However, if the driver applies the brakes while the VSA is malfunctioning, the vehicle may come to an abrupt stop. Additionally, due to a loose ground connection, certain model year 2005 Pilots have a VSA system that may apply partial brake force, without the illumination of the brake lights, whether or not the driver is using the brakes.
CONSEQUENCE:
Sudden inadvertent braking, especially without illumination of the brake lights, may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
