The numbers may be low, but it’s still a serious recall as Aston Martin discovered airbag issues in their cars.
Aston Martin The Americas with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have found out that 17 Aston Martin cars sold in the USA have an issue plaguing the front passenger airbag. According to the report from NHTSA, “the vehicles may not have had their passenger airbag fixings tightened to the correct torque”. In short, the airbag won’t deploy and that’s never a good thing.
The cars affected by this problem include the 2018-2019 MY DB11 Coupe and Volante built during August 10, 2017 and October 18, 2018, the Vantage, created between June 16 and November 27, 2018 and the DBS Superleggera made during December 5-12, 2018.
As part of the recall, all units will be fixed free of charge, with the intended torque values being applied to the fixings. Aston Martin The Americas will commence the recall on December 18 this year and owners can reach out to the company’s customer service at 1-866-278-6661 or they can speak with the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
