Honda Recalling 18,000 Vehicles Due to Brake Issues

Posted: Updated:

Honda is recalling more than 18,000 Honda and Acura vehicles due to brake issues.

According to the company, the brake-booster issue has not resulted in any crashes or injuries and customer notification via mail will begin in mid-July.

A production error may have allowed brake booster components to be produced outside of the original specifications, potentially causing decreased brake assistance over time, which could increase the risk of a crash, the company stated in a release.

The recall affects 5,239 Honda S2000 model vehicles from 2006-2007 and 13,113 Acura RSX models from the year 2006.

Affected owners are asked to take their vehicles in to an authorized dealership for an inspection and, if needed, replacement.
