Toyota, Honda launch recalls over brake fluid leaks
Toyota (TM) launched its latest giant recall in October over safety deficiencies — and this time it will be joined by Honda.
The world’s largest automaker said it will recall 1.5 million cars globally, including 728,544 in the U.S., to fix a rubber seal that can degrade and cause brake fluid to leak, which would weaken brake power. Honda said later in the day that it will follow suit with a recall over the same issue.
The recalls cover a variety of vehicles spanning the 2005 to 2007 model years. Drivers will get early warning of a problem when the low brake fluid warning light illuminates. Both automakers said they have no reports of accidents, although Toyota said it found 14 instances in which the leak occurred.
For Toyota, it’s only the latest blow to its reputation atop the 15 recalls in the past year. Toyota- and Lexus-brand models involved in this one: 2005-06 Avalon, 2004-06 Highlander, 2004-2006 Lexus RX, 2006 GS and 2006 IS.
Toyota’s action caught Honda by surprise. “Initially, we weren’t sure it was going to be a recall,” said Honda spokeswoman Christina Ra.
Honda plans today to officially file with regulators its recall of certain 2005-07 Honda Odyssey minivans and Acura RL sedans.
For safety critic Sean Kane of auto consultants Safety Research & Strategies, the latest Toyota recall “speaks to me about the kind of research and quality issues we’re seeing in Toyota.”
But this recall was unusual in that both automakers said the problem wouldn’t occur if owners had simply followed automakers’ recommendations to use only their branded brake fluid.
In its filing with U.S. regulators, Toyota said its brake fluids contain polymers that act as lubricants. If the wrong kind of brake fluid is added, a rubber seal in the brake master cylinder can dry out and curl, causing the leak.
Toyota said it was made aware of the problem by 2006 through reports from the field of brake warning lights going on and leaks. Testing earlier this year found that the leakage was small. But it ran afoul of Japanese regulations and prompted a recall there, so Toyota ordered the U.S. recall as well.
“In Japan, the specification says you can’t have any leaks,” said Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons. “In the U.S., we didn’t want there to be any confusion.” He said Toyota has since revised the master-cylinder design so that it holds up to different types of brake fluid.
Still, said Clarence Ditlow of the Center for Auto Safety, “It’s a defect. There should have been an earlier recall.”
