Recall roundup: McLaren 12C Spider image

The British based automaker McLaren has recently announced a recall for the 12C Spider supercar, because of a problem with the wiper’s design.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that approximately 376 units of the supercar will be affected by this recall across the United States and it seems that the vehicles were originally sold or they are currently registered in states like Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama or Florida. According to the feds, the hot and humid air can cause the jamming of the wiper motor brushes and this can stop working. If this happens during heavy rain, the visibility will be reduced and the risk of a crash will increase.

The affected McLaren 12C Spider supercars have been produced between the 10th of October, 2011, and the 23rd of October, 2013. Owners of the British supercars will be notified by the company soon and the wiper motor will be replaced, free of charge. Other vehicles outside this recall are said to get a liftetime warranty on the wiper motors. The recall is expected to begin soon, but McLaren hasn’t announced an exact date. Owners of the 12C Spider can find out more about the subject at 1-888-327-4236, calling the NHTSA, or by contacting McLaren at 1-646-429-8916.
