Honda Recalling Cars for Brakes

Honda recently announced that it is recalling 104,500 cars in 49 different countries worldwide to fix problems with the brakes.

In the United States, the recall covers around 20,000 Acura RSX compact cars from 2006, and the Honda S2000 sports car from both 2006 and 2007. About 75,000 of the recalled cars were sold in Japan. Outside of America, the recall includes the 2006 and 2007 Honda Edix, the 2006 Honda Mobilio, the 2005 and 2006 Honda Air Wave, the 2006 Honda Spike, the 2006 Honda Stream and both the 2005 and 2006 Honda Integra.

Honda says some power brake booster parts were not made according to specifications. So, the parts could cause a decrease in braking power over time, and could increase the risk of a car crash. The company says that it does not know of any accidents or injuries stemming directly from the problem as of yet.

In the United States, included in the recall are around 5,000 S2000s and around 13,000 RSX compacts.

Honda discovered the problem by watching warranty claims. Unfortunately, U.S. owners will not be notified by mail until mid-July. Dealers will be replacing the brake booster for owners of these vehicles. In America, RSX owners should call 800.382.2238 for information, but S2000 owners should call 800.999.1009, according to the company’s statement.

If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a defective vehicle or product, you may be entitled to compensation. If a vehicle, such as the Honda’s above,  had faulty parts that were the direct cause of an accident, you may be entitled to reimbursement.
