The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the S2000 and for the Acura RSX, because of a problem with the brake boosters.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 5,239 Honda S2000 vehicles and 13,113 units of the Acura RSX will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the brake boosters fixed.
“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. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was discovered through warranty claim analysis”, as Honda says in its official statement.
The affected Honda S200 vehicles are from the 2006 – 2007 model years and the Acura RSX from the 2006 model year. Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the brake boosters, free of charge. Honda is advising owners of the models mentioned above to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive the notification of the recall from American Honda.
