Honda has issued a recall on certain versions of its Acura RSX and S2000 sports cars. The issue has to do with the cars’ brakes, so owners of the affected vehicles should take caution.
The cars included in the recall are 2006 Acura RSX models built from January 18, 2006, through August 12, 2006, and 2006-2007 Honda S2000 models built from January 19, 2006, through November 13, 2006.
According to Honda, there are some 18,352 owners affected in the U.S. alone.
The reason for the recall is a faulty brake booster that may be unable to maintain a vacuum when the pedal is depressed, decreasing brake assist.
With reduced braking assistance, the vehicle may require additional force on the pedal to get full stopping power, increasing the risk of a crash.
Honda is currently in the process of notifying owners affected by the recall. Their closest dealer will inspect the booster assembly and replace it if necessary, free of charge.
