Rolls-Royce has recently announced a recall of its “small” Ghost model because of a defective electric auxiliary water pump which could lead to a vehicle fire or even a crash, with the “action” being part of the recent BMW recall involving 32.084 units of the 2008 – 2011 models for the same issue.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 589 owners of the 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost will have to make a trip back to the dealerships because of a defective electric auxiliary water pump which could lead to a vehicle fire.
“The circuit board for the electric auxiliary water pump can overheat. This could lead to a smoldering of the pump or an engine compartment or vehicle fire”, said the NHTSA in its official press release.
Rolls-Royce says that it didn’t receive any reports of accidents or injuries related to this recall and all affected vehicles are equipped with turbocharged engines. The luxury automaker became aware of this problem through the BMW internal quality control analyses and processes.
2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost owners will have to make a trip back to the dealers which will replace the auxiliary water pump free of charge, with the recall being expected to begin sometimes this month (November). Owners of the above mentioned model can contact the luxury automaker at 1-877-877-3735.
