Acura RSX Recalls

Reduced Braking Performance

The braking system uses an assist device called a brake booster. These vehicles use a brake booster that is operated by engine vacuum and in certain cases the booster may not be able to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed. This will result in reduced braking assistance, requiring additional force on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the brake booster and replace it as necessary.

This is a significant issue that has caused me great concern.After doing a little research I see a trend w/ the early K-series and a lot of...
Excellent track car after all the modifications I made to it. Plus it's a gas sipper, but gas guzzler when I step on it. :-)
