2013AstonMartinDB9

Aston Martin is recalling 689 sports cars due to a manufacturing error that could cause the throttle pedal arm to break, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Affected vehicles include model-year 2012-14 DB9, Virage, V8 and V12 Vantage, and Rapide.

The recalled vehicles were manufactured between May 14, 2012, and April 10, 2013. If the throttle pedal arm breaks, the engine will return to idle and the driver will be unable to maintain or increase engine speed, increasing the risk of a crash.

Aston Martin will notify owners according to a still-unspecified schedule, and dealers will replace the throttle pedal assemblies for free. Owners may call the automaker at 888-923-9988 or the NHTSA vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
