UPDATE 1-Honda recalls 528,000 vehicles, mainly in U.S.

* About 435,000 Odyssey minivans in U.S. recalled

* ADVICS Co Ltd of Japan supplier of seal in recall

* Same supplier in 1.5 mln Toyota vehicle recall Thursday

* No reported accidents in Honda or Toyota recalls

DETROIT, Oct 22 (BestGrowthStock) – Honda Motor Co Ltd (7267.T: )
said on Friday it was recalling 528,000 vehicles worldwide due
to potential problems with a master brake cylinder seal.

Most of the recalled vehicles are Odyssey minivans sold in
the United States.

The recall is similar to one issued on Thursday by Toyota
Motor Corp (7203.T: ) for about 1.5 million vehicles worldwide.

The same supplier, ADVICS Co Ltd, a privately held Japanese
company with a unit in the United States, made the seals for
both major automakers.

No accidents or injuries have been reported due to to the
faulty seals.

Of the Honda recalls, 435,000 of them are Odyssey minivans
sold in the United States.

A smaller number of Acura RL sedans sold around the world
is involved in the Honda recall.

As in the Toyota recall, Honda says the seals may fail and
cause brake fluid to leak if factory-issued brake fluid is
replaced with fluid that is not “factory-issue.”

A change in the way the supplier makes the seals was made
after the vehicles affected by the recall were produced. The
new seals allow for a wide range of brake fluids without
causing leaks, Toyota said on Thursday.

A Honda spokeswoman said the automaker will in the next
couple of months tell customers to bring cars to dealerships
for repairs. If the dashboard brake warning light is
illuminated, drivers are asked to bring their autos to
dealerships immediately, she said.

Toyota also recalled another 134,000 vehicles in China on
Thursday for a separate issue.

Honda did not say how much the repairs will cost the
company.
