Britain-based automobile manufacturer Aston Martin is reportedly planning on recalling about 5,500 vehicles, circulated in the United States of America. This is being done due to problems directly relating to the vehicle’s powertrains as well as battery cables. A report by Reuters, citing information interpreted through the documents posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website provided this information.
Aston Martin is expected to schedule the recalling program sometime next year. The report by Reuters suggests that it might start from February 1, 2018, onward. Aston Martin primarily shot to fame by featuring in world-famous, fictional spy movies James Bond. The automobile manufacturer is currently preparing for a stock market listing or sale of the company itself.
The official documents regarding this matter were recently published on the official NHTSA website. The website suggested that Aston Martin is planning on recalling some vehicles, which were manufactured between the years, 2009 and 2016. The list of cars that were going to be remembered next year includes 3,493 DB9, DBS, Rapide, Virage and Vanquish models. The vehicles are being suspected of causing transmission park pawl not to engage. If this problem continues to grow stronger, then there are increased chances of the drivers facing a crash.
Aston Martin besides recalling the car mentioned above models is also planning on getting the 1,953 DB9 and DBS vehicles manufactured between 2005 and 2009 back. The Gaydon, England-based company feels that the battery supply cables of these cars, after being damaged several times, may go to a full rearward location. This could lead to grave problems, which might ultimately end in fire. Several media publications attempted at reaching out to the company for a comment on this matter, but they haven’t been able to provide any response as yet.
