(WTVM) -

Honda is recalling more than 180,000 vehicles in the United States and nearly 250,000 worldwide because of a brake problem.

A glitch in the vehicles' electronic stability control system could cause the cars to brake randomly when the driver isn't pressing the brake pedal.

The U.S. recall involves the following models:

2005 Honda Pilot SUV
2005 Acura RL Sedan
2006 Acura MDX SUV

Owners will be notified by mail in mid-April.

Honda dealers will install a new electrical part at no charge.
