A stability control part can cause brakes on some Honda Odyssey and Element models to fail.

Adding to a growing number of “safety campaigns, in recent weeks, Honda now plans to recall 410,000 minivans and other vehicles to deal with a balky braking system.

The move affects 344,000 of the maker’s Odyssey minivans and another 68,000 Element crossovers produced during the 2007 and 2008 model-years.

The brakes have a tendency to become softer, over time, and could eventually lose braking power entirely, said spokesman Chris Martin, confirming the brake system “is definitely not operating the way it should.”
