Honda recalls S2000 sports car, Acura RSX to fix brake problem

Honda is recalling about 18,000 vehicles including the Acura RSX sedan and the Honda S2000 sports car sold in the U.S. because of a brake problem.
The automaker said a manufacturing error in the power brake system components may cause it to decrease the assistance it provides in braking, a factor that increases the risk of a crash.
However, no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was discovered through an analysis of warranty claims.
The recall includes 5,239 Honda S2000 vehicles from the 2006-2007 model years and 13,113 Acura RSX vehicles from the 2006 model year. Honda said it will inspect and, if needed, replace the brake booster in these vehicles.
