Stay Safe - Honda and Acura Vehicles Recalled For Brake Problems

Most people drive around from place to place without a care in the world. They believe their cars are safe and have no reason to think otherwise. However, sometimes, a part or piece can malfunction and put the motorist in danger. Heck, they even pose a threat to pedestrians and other people on the roadways. One of the scariest feelings in the world is attempting to slow a vehicle down only to have a spongy brake pedal. If it compresses to the floor and nothing happens, the person's car can slam into someone else's rear end, an immovable object like a concrete barrier, or even a building.

Of course, anyone that has ever been involved in a crash knows that the events are anything but forgiving. Skin and bones are just no match for metal, rubber, and glass. People can be left with minor to severe injuries, and sometimes, participants can even lose their lives. Aside from death, some of the other common damages associated with these incidents include...

• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Burns, Lacerations, Contusions
• Brain Injuries
• Loss Of Limbs
• Partial Or Full Paralysis

Folks Become Involved In Lawsuits

It is extremely expensive to recover fully from injuries sustained in a car crash. The victim usually misses time from work, which means there is no income coming in to pay for rent, utilities, and other necessities. Plus, they also have to come up with the funds for doctor appointments, prescriptions, and much more. Thus, they hire a lawyer to prove fault and seek compensation for the damages. How does an attorney help? The firm...

• Collects Witness Testimonies
• Obtains Police And Insurance Reports
• Recreates The Accident Scene As Needed
• Takes Care Of The Legal Aspects So That The Client Can Concentrate On Recovering

Proving who is to blame is easier said than done at times though. This element is particularly true when part manufacturers and automobile companies become part of the equation. These organizations have legal teams waiting in the wings for the opportunity to discredit such claims. They attempt to shift blame to the driver, delay the proceedings to get the victim to settle for a low-ball settlement, and even try to get the plaintiff to sign their rights to compensation away. So, put a proven commodity on your side and don't allow these firms to take advantage of you.

Florida Residents Should Know About Recall Numbers C31 And L30

This recall is expected to begin on December 17, 2018, and it has a potential 64,785 affected units. In other words, the vehicles could be anywhere, including right here in our own backyards. The American Honda Motor Company is recalling specific 2017-2019 Acura MDX, 2017-2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid, Honda Odyssey, 2016 Honda HR-V, and 2018-2019 Honda HR-V models. These cars fail to meet the provisions of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

What does that mean exactly? Well, the rear brake caliper pistons might have an inadequate coating, which in turn, allows gas pockets to form. Hence, this issue results in reduced brake performance and increases the car's risk being involved in a crash. Owners are supposed to be contacted by the company, and they will bleed the brakes free of charge. However, those interested in the matter should contact the Honda customer service department at 1-888-234-2138 for more information.
