Recall- Honda & Acura Recall for Brake Booster Issue

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. more commonly known to consumers as Honda, is recalling certain model year 2006 Acura RSX vehicles manufactured between January 18, 2006, and August 12, 2006; and model year 2006-2007 Honda S2000 vehicles manufactured between January 19, 2006, and November 13, 2006. The potentially dangerous issue with the defective models is that the brake booster may be unable to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed, decreasing brake assist. More than 18,000 vehicles are within the pool of units that could be on the roads with this issue. Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake booster assemblies to confirm that they are in within specification. If necessary, the dealers will replace the booster assembly free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 12, 2013. Owners seeking further information may contact Honda at 1-310-783-2000. Honda's recall number for this issue is JA4. Acura's recall number for this issue is JA5. Consumers with affected issues should not delay in addressing this potentially dangerous condition with their vehicle braking system. With reduced braking assistance, the vehicle may require additional brake pedal force to prevent a lengthened stopping distance, thereby increasing the risk of a crash, great bodily injury or death.
