DETROIT (AP) -- Subaru is recalling three of its car models and Honda is recalling some motorcycles because of problems with the brakes.
   
Honda is recalling 126,000 GL-1800 motorcycles from the 2001 to 2012 model years. Federal safety regulators say that the brakes may not fully release. The problem with a part could cause a crash or a fire in the rear brake.
   
Two fires were reported, but it was unclear if any crashes occurred.
   
Subaru is recalling nearly 32,000 Legacy, Outback and Impreza models from 2012.  A defective brake part could cause the brake pedal to travel farther than expected. Federal safety regulators say this could cause a driver to misjudge that amount of pressure needed to stop quickly.
   
The company says no crashes or injuries have happened.
