Recall roundup: Lamborghini Aventador image

Lamborghini has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Aventador because of a problem with its headlights.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 144 units of the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador will be affected by this recall. The NHTSA says that owners of the Italian supercar will have to bring it to the dealers because of a headlight problem which could blind oncoming traffic. The affected models have been produced between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012. The recall might be expanded to other markets except the U.S.

“The affected vehicles may have headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically. An incorrect headlamp aim could reduce the driver’s visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic. Either condition may increase the risk of (a) crash” as the NHTSA says in its summary of the problem.

The company’s dealerships have been informed about this recall across the United States and dealers will enable the vertical aiming and disable the horizontal aiming of the headlights. The recall will begin today, December 17, 2012. No details on possible crashes or injures, related to this problem, have been announced. Owners of the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador in the U.S. are advised to contact the automaker at 1-866-681-6276.
