Honda, Bentley, Lamborghini and Ford recall vehicles



Honda is recalling 344,000 Odyssey minivans of the 2007-2008 model years to fix a problem that can cause the vehicle to brake suddenly.

The Japanese automaker said Friday that a software and parts problem can cause hydraulic pressure to build in the braking system after an engine restart.

Honda says it will replace a “yaw sensor” but the part won’t be available until early next year. In the meantime, it issued instructions online on how to drive to prevent the problem from occurring.

Bentley, Lamborghini

DETROIT — Luxury car makers Bentley and Lamborghini are recalling 1,136 cars between them for brake problems.

The recall covers the Bentley Continental GT, GTC and Flying Spur from the 2007-11 model years; the Lamborghini Murcielago and Murcielago Roadster from the 2006-10 - years; and the Lamborghini Gallardo and Gallardo Spyder from the 2007-09 years.

The stainless steel screws that secure the brake rotors may fall out in salty conditions.

Loss of the screws can reduce braking ability.

Owners will be contacted and dealers will replace the screws for free.


DETROIT — Ford is recalling about 3,100 F-Series ambulances because the engines can stop unexpectedly.

The F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty ambulances have 6.7-Liter diesel engines. They’re from the 2011 and 2012 model years.

Ford says a faulty exhaust gas temperature sensor can cause the engines to stop and not be restarted for at least an hour. The company says it has no reports of the problem affecting patient care.

Dealers will replace the sensor.
