Aston Martin recalling over 5000 cars, some for roll-away risk, others for potential fires.
When someone buys a luxury exotic car, they know that it’ll be eventually more problematic than a typical Toyota. It’s also not very uncommon that a exotic car catches fire. But the takeaway here is if you’re a owner an Aston Martin that was built between 2009 and 2016 you should probably call your dealer to see if it’s part of the latest recall.
Bloomberg reports that Aston Martin is recalling more than 5,000 cars in the U.S. due to two potentially serious issues. The first recall is to fix a problem that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says “can cause the transmission park pawl not to engage,” causing a roll-away risk, and the second risky reason before the recall is to fix battery cables that may cause fire.
The former affects 3,493 DB9, DBS, Rapide, Virage, and Vanquish cars, while the latter affects 1,953 DB9 and DBS coupes. While that might not sound like a large recall, but we should not forget that Aston Martin only sold about 3,600 cars worldwide last year.
Considering that even the least expensive Aston Martin which you can buy today costs more than $100,000, we highly recommend making sure it doesn’t go up in smoke or roll down a hill and crash
You can also check the NHTSA’s official website to see if your car is affected, as well as whether or not it’s subject / due to any more recalls.
