Honda Civic, Passport, Pilot, Ridgeline, and Acura MDX cars manufactured in 2020 and after are vulnerable to a manufacturing flaw that might result in the loss of braking operation.

There has been a recall on four different Honda models and one Acura due to a potential brake failure caused by cylinder separation.
There may be as many as 124,077 automobiles affected, according to documents submitted with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
By August 7th, 2023, all owners will have been notified.
Several models of Honda and Acura vehicles have been recalled because of a braking problem that might reduce brake strength or prevent drivers from using the brakes completely. All 2020 and 2021 Civics, Passports, Pilots, and Ridgelines from Honda, as well as all 2020 MDXs from Acura, are included in the recall.

The recall report submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that the issue is due to a missing or misplaced tie rod fastener between the brake master cylinder and the brake booster. According to the paperwork, applying the brakes can cause the master cylinder and brake booster to become unattached because the tie rod studs may break. This defect in production raises the possibility that the brakes will become less effective or stop working completely.

There have been no reports of injuries or accidents, but Honda has received two warranty claims relating to the issue. Honda will mail recall notices in August, but owners can check the NHTSA recalls website to see if their vehicle is affected.
