McLaren recalls MP4 12Cs in Hot Weather States

Wiper motors may fail

Word of a recall has surfaced that proves expensive supercars aren’t immune to automotive recalls. McLaren has announced that it is issuing a recall on certain model year 2012-2014 MP4 12C coupe and spider vehicles. The cars were built between October 10, 2011 and October 23, 2013.

The reason for the recall is that if the vehicles are driven in hot weather states where humidity is an issue the wiper motors can fail. All of the cars registered in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas will be recalled and have the wiper motors replaced.

McLaren says that the high temperatures and humidity can cause the wiper motor brushes to jam. A wiper motor that fails while the car is driving in bad weather could lead to a crash. I don’t see many MP4 12C owners driving their car in the rain.
