Recall Alert: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador

2012LamborghiniAventador

Lamborghini is recalling 144 model-year 2012 Aventador sports cars because of headlamps that do not conform to federal safety standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles, manufactured from July 15, 2011, through April 20, 2012, may have headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically. This may reduce the driver's visibility and blind oncoming motorists, increasing the risk of a crash. The problematic headlights also fail to conform to the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Lamborghini will begin notifying owners on Monday, and dealers will enable the vertical aiming and disable the horizontal aiming of the headlamps for free. Owners may call Lamborghini at 866-681-6276 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
