2008 Honda Odyssey. Consumer states brake pedal depresses. The consumer stated when the brake pedal was depressed in an emergency condition or in a panic stop, the pedal would travel below the accelerator pedal which would cause both pedals to be depressed simultaneously which also caused the vehicle to lurch forward when the brake pedal was released. Also, there was a problem with the steering wheel indicator lighting. There was a very noticeable difference in the consumers vehicle illumination intensity of the steering wheel indicator lights and the rest of the vehicles lighted indicators on the doors and dash fixtures. In the dark of night, out on the open highway, the consumer could easily read the lighted door and dash indicator, but he could not read the faintly lit indicators on the steering wheel. The dealer stated the steering wheel light indicators were the same as all the other Odyssey's on the lot.
Brakes have a very soft and spongy feeling. Brakes have to be depressed almost to the floor to stop the vehicle. You have to allow extra distance in order to stop the vehicle. Once stopped with brakes applied, vehicle will lurch forward.

My 2007 Honda Odyssey brakes are too soft, I'm not confident about the brakes from the day I bought the vehicle, I need to put extra pressure to bring the vehicle to a stop. Brakes have to be depressed all the way to the floor to stop and almost avoid rear ending couple of times. Took it to the dealer, they bleed the system and said it ok, but I don't see any difference, its really very unsafe with these kind of brakes. I see lot of owners are having the same problems , please act immediately. I bought this vehicle for my kids and I no longer feel safe to drive this vehicle with my kids.
Honda Odyssey 2007 exl: brake pedal is soft requiring pressing almost to the bottom to stop the car. Dealer did replace master cylinder but no difference, the same scary feeling especially on a highway. Couple times I even manage to press brake and accelerator pedals at the same time while trying to stop a car. The first time it happened (it was in canada and road was slippery) I had to use parking brake to stop a car.
: the contact stated the brake pedal of the vehicle started rocking left to right when depressed, even if the vehicle was immobile or at any speed. No warning light were illuminated prior to the incident. The vehicle was taken to the dealership who determined the brake pedal rocking movement was normal. The contact was concerned because it could be connected with other unnoticed safety problems. The manufacturer was not contacted. The sliding door actuator was replaced. The side door sepaker was replaced. Updated 12/01/06.
