Honda's figured some units of the Brio and Amaze may have a bit of an issue, and so, it has issued a recall for certain variants today.

There may be a "mis-assembled" proportioning valve (a component which adjusts braking pressure distribution) in some of the non-ABS versions of both cars, says Honda. 15,623 units of the Brio, and 15,603 units of the Amaze manufactured between 28 February 2013 to 16 January 2014 may be affected by this problem.

The ABS models do not feature said proportioning valve, so if you're a diesel Amaze owner, you need not be concerned.

Honda will contact affected customers in a phased manner, and if needed, will replace the component free of cost.
