BRAKE PROBLEM: Honda is recalling 104,500 cars in 49 countries worldwide to fix problems with the brakes.

THE PROBLEM: Honda says some power brake booster parts weren't made to specifications. That could cause a decrease in braking power over time and could increase the risk of a crash. But the company says it doesn't know of any accidents or injuries from the problem.

WHICH ONES: In the U.S., the recall covers about 13,000 Acura RSX compact cars from 2006 and 5,000 Honda S2000 sports cars from the 2006 and 2007 model years. About 70,000 of the recalled cars were sold in Japan.
