Aston Martin Issues Recall on DB9, Vantage, and Rapide Models

Throttle pedal arm could break

There've been a lot of automotive recalls this year and most of them have been with high-volume manufacturers such as Toyota, Ford, and Chevrolet. However, even high-end sports car makers such as Aston Martin aren't immune to recalls. Aston Martin has issued a recall on certain model year DB9, Virage, V8 Vantage, V12 Vantage, and Rapide vehicles.

The recall covers vehicles produced between May 14, 2012 and April 10, 2013. The reason for the recall is a manufacturing error having to do with a throttle pedal arm that could break. Aston says that if that throttle pedal arm broke the engine would return to idle leaving the driver unable to maintain or increase engine speed.

Being unable to maintain speed could pose the risk of an accident. Aston Martin will be notifying owners and dealers and will replace the throttle pedal assemblies at no cost to owners. Notification should be going out soon.
