After a major service maintenance schedule performed by moses Honda, 6018 u. S. 60 rt. East of barboursville, I noticed a severe depletion of brake pedal on my 1999 Honda Passport while stopped at a traffic light. I immediately took the vehicle to moses auto service and explained what was happening. The service manager had a technician to inspect the vehicle and subsequently added brake fluid. The service manager explained more attention would be available on my next service date. After my next service date no mention of the brake problem was addressed. On November 23, 2004 I was traveling west on rt. 60 and passed through a traffic light at exit 15 I-64 and was confronted by a gray van suddenly stopped. I immediately thrust my foot on my brakes, to no avail. I subsequently collided with the vehicle in front of me. It was a horrifying experience with the operation of the airbags, smoke and noise. There was a cabell county deputy sheriff near the scene who did the reporting and investigation. Later that same day I once again passed through the accident scene and discovered no tire skid marks. This has aroused my suspicion about the brakes. The vehicle is stored at paul's garage. 6141 childers rd. Barboursville, wv ph. 304-736-4531. I would like for your office to investigate this vehicle for brake failure before repairs begin. Thank you,
james h. Parsons.

Problems with brake equipment on 1998 Honda Passport. Prior to recall notification, when the consumer attempted to brake, the vehicle did not respond and therefore the consumer was unable to stop the vehicle in time to avoid a collision with another vehicle. The brakes failed to respond on a second occasion while driving on a rough bumpy pavement, again the consumer collided with another vehicle.

Was coasting to a stop at a red light. Applied brakes on a rough surface and the brakes failed to bring vehicle to a stop. Had to use the emergency brake to halt the vehicle. The vehicle would not stop even after trying to re-apply the brakes. \ had to shut off vehicle and restart then the brakes started to work again. Took vehicle to dealer, and mechancs stated that it was a normal function when driving over a rough surface for the tires to unlock as part of the abs system. Dealer drove with me to a gravel parking area and sped vehicle and stepped on brakes and it did to him what it did to me. He stated that this was a normal function. This has happened 8 times this year alone and continues to scare the heck out of me when it happens. 2 times almost caused me to bump another vehicle from behind but used emergency break to halt vehicle.
This problem has been reported to the dealer several times. The dealer found nothing wrong because the problem cannot be duplicated on demand. Last week when slowly making a right-hand turn into a neighbors drive, the brakes completely failed causing a crash.
Twice upon braking, a brake failure occured in which the brakes engaged and then suddenly the brakes seemed to release. This caused an additional 20 to 30 feet of additional vehicle travel on wet pavement. Luckily there was no vehicle immediately in front of me otherwise a collision would have occured. It seems as though the abs system releases for too long. Other abs systems I have driven in similar conditions on the same road did not present this problem. There was a constant rate of decelleration. This '98 rodeo had marked perceivable periods of decelleration and then acceleration (about 1 second) and then decelleration until a complete stop. This brake failure is extremely frightening. The road conditions were only wet.
Poor abs brake performance, the brake pedal went to the floor and complete brake failure was experienced. Vehicle kept on going an smashed into another vehicle.

While driving, consumer attempted to depress the brakes which failed on wet road conditions and slid from side to side. This resulted in a collision. A few days after the collision, the consumer received technical service bulletin # 03012(mfr) 10001303(NHTSA) regarding brake problems.
