Aston Martin Recalls Vehicles

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJuly 20th, 2016


Aston Martin has issued a recall on a number of their vehicles as a result of an issue identified with their door locks. The affected vehicles include the 2010-2015 Aston Martin DB9, 2010-2012 DBS, 2010-2016 Rapide, 2010-2016 V8 Vantage, 2012 Virage, 2014-2016 Vanquish, 2011-2016 V12 Vantage, and 2012-2013 V12 Zagato. In total 6,076 cars are impacted by the recall.

The problems door locks have been isolated to the door unlocking mechanism which may not function properly when the vehicle is locked from the outside. Due to the issue with the locks, a passenger could get trapped inside the vehicle. Aston Martin’s recall will require dealership to deactivate a feature in the locking system which has a double locking process. The system is controlled by a computer so the fix should just be a simple software update.
