The British based automaker Lotus has recently announced a recall of its 2011 Elise model because of a problem with the turn-signal lights.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52 units of the 2011 Lotus Elise will be affected by the recall and its owners will have to make a trip back to the dealership to get their turn-signal module replaced. The car manufacturer didn’t announce an exact date for the recall but the NHTSA says that if the vehicle’s turn-signal lamp is not operating correctly, the risk of a crash is increasing.
“These vehicles were fitted with turn-signal modules which were not compatible with the revised front headlight configuration which includes the integral front LED turn-signal units. The incompatible module may, under certain conditions, cause all the LED turn-signal lamps to flash at an erratic frequency when the hazard warning switch is depressed”, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recalls in the summary of the problem.
The NHTSA says that only 52 models of the 2011 Lotus Elise will be affected by the recall and its owners will have to make a trip back to the dealerships to get their turn-signal module replaced. Owners of the 2011 Elise can contact Lotus at (800) 245-6887.
