Recall: Honda S2000, Acura RSX for weak brakes
Cars from the 2006 and 2007 model years are affected.
The 2006-2007 Honda S2000 and 2006 Acura RSX have brake boosters that can cause "decreased brake assistance over time" and make it harder for drivers to stop the vehicle. Honda said that it received many warranty claims related to the issue, but that no injuries or accidents were reported.
In total, 5,239 S2000 models and 13,113 RSX models are affected. Dealers will replace the brake booster starting in mid-July. Owners can visit www.recalls.honda.com and www.recalls.acura.com for more details.
On Wednesday, Toyota recalled 242,000 hybrids worldwide to fix weakened brakes due to a cracked pressure accumulator, including about 87,000 in the United States.
Fix all of the WEAK transmissions on every Honda too. Paper filters for a transmission are a scam.
The Korean manufacturers' competition are forcing QC issues with Honda and they are cutting corners.
Recalls seem to be commonplace for Honda now.
if the brakes are weak now, why wait until mid-july to start fixing them?
sounds like a failure to plan ah
