DETROIT — Honda is recalling more than 18,000 cars in the United States — and 86,000 elsewhere — to fix brake problems.

The recall affects more than 13,000 Acura RSX compact cars from 2006 and the Honda S2000 sports car from the 2006 and 2007 model years. Owners will be notified by mail in mid-July.

Also, Chrysler Group LLC is recalling 6,900 heavy-duty Ram pickup trucks from the 2012 model year because part of the front axle could fracture and cause them to lose power. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will repair or replace the front axles for free.
