McLaren P1 Recalled

Posted by: Lydia Siu onJanuary 6th, 2016


Even the most premiere performance auto house isn’t immune to recalls. McLaren has issued a recall on 122 of their P1 cars in the US with a build date between March 1, 2013 to October 31, 2015.

The problem has been identified as a faulty secondary front hood latch which may not properly engage. Basically, if the primary hood latch is accidently released, the secondary latch may not operate correctly and potentially release the hood while the vehicle is in motion. Vehicles that were produced after October 31, 2015 have all been fitted with a revised version of the secondary hood latch.

Owners should contact me immediately for an inspection and road test. In all seriousness, owners will hear from McLaren shortly to take their cars into the dealer for a full inspection and replacement of the secondary hood latch.
