Recall Alert: 2008-14 Aston Martin Vehicles

2012-dbs

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,001 versions of Aston Martin vehicles, including the 2008-2014 DB9 and V8 Vantage, 2009-2012 DBS, 2010-2012 Rapide, 2014 Rapide S, 2011-2012 V12 Vantage, 2011-2014 V8 Vantage S and 2012 Virage vehicles.

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that a manufacturing error could cause the accelerator pedal arm to fail. "If the accelerator 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," NHTSA said in a statement. This is an expansion of an earlier recall.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the affected accelerator pedal assemblies for free.

What Owners Should Do: Aston Martin will notify owners starting Feb. 7. Owners can call Aston Martin at 888-923-9988 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
