DETROIT » Honda is recalling 104,500 cars in 49 countries worldwide to fix problems with the brakes.

In the U.S., the recall covers more than 18,000 Acura RSX compact cars from 2006 and the Honda S2000 sports car from the 2006 and 2007 model years.

About 70,000 of the recalled cars were sold in Japan. Outside the U.S., the recall includes the 2006 and 2007 Honda Edix, the 2006 Honda Mobilio, the 2006 Honda Spike, the 2005 and 2006 Honda Air Wave, the 2006 Honda Stream and the 2005 and 2006 Honda Integra.

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.

Included in the recall are about 13,000 RSX compacts and 5,000 S2000s in the United States.

Honda found the problem by watching warranty claims. U.S. owners will be notified by mail in mid-July. Dealers will replace the brake booster if needed.

In the U.S., RSX owners can call (800) 382-2238 for information, while S2000 owners can call (800) 999-1009, the company said in a statement issued today.
