The Italian based automaker Lamborghini has recently announced a recall in the United States for the Gallardo because of a potential fire risk.
After it was recalled last month in Australia and then in Canada too, the Lamborghini Gallardo owners in the United States should get ready for the same action because the carmaker has announced a recall because of a potential fire risk. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2004-2006 owners of the Lamborghini Gallardo will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The NHTSA says that in models equipped with high pressure steering lines, the fluid can start leaking, increasing the risk of fire.
“Lamborghini is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 Gallardo Coupe and Spyder vehicles. In certain driving conditions, the high pressure steering pipes near the the steering assistance hydraulic system pump might leak”, as Lambo is saying in its official recalls summary of the problem.
This recall will affect 1,491 units of the Lamborghini Gallardo in the United States and their owners will have to take the supercars to the dealerships where an updated power steering system will be installed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin soon and Lamborghini will start notifying owners. Meanwhile, if you own a 2004-2006 Lamborghini Gallardo with high pressure steering lines you may want to contact the carmaker at 1-703-364—7042 or the NHTSA at 1-888-326-4236.
