Honda Recalls 2006 Pilot, 2005-2006 Acura MDX for Stability Assist

Capacitor Malfunction Could Cause Excessive Brake Force

Edward A. SanchezMar 20, 2013
Honda is recalling more than 100,000 Pilot SUVs and 60,000 Acura MDX models for a potential malfunction of the Vehicle Stability Control (VSA) system. An issue with faulty capacitors identified with some models causes inadvertent brake application without driver input. Although no injuries or crashes have been reported as a result of this issue, the company has received several customer complaints.

The Problem: A defective VSA capacitor could malfunction and apply a small amount of brake force for a short period without driver input. Unexpected braking input could possibly result in the increased risk of a crash.
The Fix: Honda will replace the electrical sub-harness at no charge. Approximately half of the affected Pilot models will also be inspected for an electrical ground bolt that may be loose. If found to be loose, the ground bolt will also be tightened as part of the recall. Concerned owners can contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236, or call Honda at 800/999-1009. Acura owners can call 382-2238, option 4.
