Aston Martin to issue recall of five models due to potential problems with the suspension bolt
Yes, even the mighty, high-end, top-performance cars are not immune to recalls. We know what happened to the Ferrari 458 Italia, right?
Now it looks like a British marquee is poised to have a recall of its own. Aston Martin has announced that they are in the process of recalling over 1,000 units of a fleet of their models in the US. In total, 1,090 units of a number of Aston Martin models, including the DB9 Coupe, the DB9 Volante, the V8 Vantage Coupe, the V8 Vantage Roadster, and the DBS will be recalled out of fears that a bolt that secures the car’s front suspension arm has the potential to crack, thereby increasing the likelihood of a crash happening. The defective bolts only encompass models built between March and September 2007.
Aston Martin has likewise announced that dealerships will replace the defective bolt with new ones in hopes of avoiding any accidents in the future. Owners of affected models are expected to receive their recall notifications sometime in the middle of October.
