MY BRAKES WENT COMPLETELY OUT ON MY NEW 2009 HONDA ODYSSEY EX-L WHILE ON VACATION WITH ONLY 2,000 MILES ON THE VEHICLE. ON A FEW OCCASIONS OVER THE LAST MONTH AND A HALF THAT I HAVE OWNED MY ODYSSEY THE VSA LIGHT (VEHICLE STABILITY ASSISTANCE) HAS COME ON FOR NO REASON AND COULD NOT BE TURNED OFF. NORMALLY THE VSA IS ON ALL TIMES BUT THE LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON UNLESS THE CONDITIONS ARE BAD. (ICE, SNOW, RAIN, ROCKS) WHEN THIS LIGHT HAS COME ON I HAVE BEEN TRAVELING AT APPROX. 50MPH, NOT BRAKING, AND THE CONDITIONS WERE SUNNY AND DRY. THEN THE HORRIBLE DAY, WITH MY 5 YEAR OLD IN THE BACK SEAT I WAS TURNING LEFT AT A LIGHT AT APPROX. 20-25 MPH WHEN I PUSHED DOWN MY BRAKE AND HEARD A GRINDING SOUND AND NO BRAKES. I BEGAN PUMPING THE BRAKES, AND THE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. AFTER A FEW SECONDS (MAYBE 5) THE BRAKES ENGAGED. I IMMEDIATELY PULLED OVER AND LOOKED UNDER THE CAR. NOTHING, AND NOTHING AT THE INTERSECTION WHERE I HAD JUST TURNED. THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP HAD TO CALL HONDA ENGINEERING WHICH SAID THAT THERE MUST BE AN ISSUE WITH THE VSA SYSTEM (THAT THIS SAME ISSUE HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER OWNERS) AND ALL THEY NEEDED TO DO WAS UNPLUG THE VSA IT, WAIT A FEW SECONDS AND THEN PLUG IT BACK IN. I WILL BE RETURNING TO OHIO FROM HILTON HEAD IN A FEW DAYS WHICH WILL REQUIRE DRIVING THROUGH SOME VERY STEEP MOUNTAINS WITH MY 5 YEAR OLD AND 1 YEAR OLD. I DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT IN THEIR DIAGNOSES. HONDA WILL NOT ISSUE A LOANER FOR ME TO DRIVE HOME AND THEN TOW MY VEHICLE 600 MILES TO ME.
