WASHINGTON (AP) - Honda Motor Co. says it plans to recall an undetermined number of vehicles because of brake fluid leaks that could lead to weaker braking power, the same issue that led Toyota Motor Corp. to recall 1.5 million vehicles.

Honda says the recall affects certain 2005-2007 model year Acura RL sedans and Honda Odyssey minivans from the 2005 to early 2007 model year.

Honda says it does not immediately know how many vehicles will be covered by the recall.

There have been no injuries or accidents tied to the problem.

The Japanese automaker says it plans to officially notify the U.S. government of the recall on Thursday.
