2007 HONDA S2000
NHTSA Campaign ID: 13V246000
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:POWER ASSIST:VACUUM
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Manufacture Dates: 07/20/2006 - 11/13/2006
Potential Units Affected: 18352
Defect Description:
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (Honda) is recalling certain model year 2006 Acura RSX vehicles manufactured January 18, 2006, through August 12, 2006; and model year 2006-2007 Honda S2000 vehicles manufactured January 19, 2006, through November 13, 2006. The brake booster may be unable to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed, decreasing brake assist.
Consequence:
With reduced braking assistance, the vehicle may require additional brake pedal force to prevent a lengthened stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake booster assembly. If necessary, the dealers will replace the booster assembly free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-310-783-2000. Honda's recall number is JA4. Acura's recall number is JA5.
