Crash Hazard Leads To Recall Of Over 5,000 Aston Martin Vehicles

Posted on

Various types of vehicles of model years ranging between 2008 and 2014 are being recalled by Aston Martin because of an issue that has the potential to cause a crash.  The recall affects just over 5,000 Rapide, Rapide S, Virage, V12 Vantage, V8 Vantage S, V8 Vantage, and DB9 automobiles.  A breakage of the accelerator arm is a possibility due to a shortcoming during production.  When this defect occurs, the vehicle can become stuck in idle mode, and in the middle of transit, the inability to accelerate appropriately could contribute to a crash.  The recall should start by the end of this week, and owners can thus expect to hear from Aston Martin.  Repairs can be sought from dealers at that time.
