A surprising announcement has been made by Rolls-Royce, as the luxury brand is being forced to recall one example of its Ghost for an inspection over the airbags system.
After so many recent recalls in the industry over airbags related problems, mainly caused by Takata’s faulty systems, one more recall is not surprising. But this time is not about Takata or other high-volume automaker. It is about one, just only one car and it is coming from a brand whose models are worth from 300,000 dollars up. In the latest campaign announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the BMW Group, owner of Rolls-Royce is calling for an inspection only one model. The car in question is a 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost manufactured on January 23, 2014, that could have some airbags issues.
In the report forwarded to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it is stated that the affected vehicle has thorax air bags fitted to both front seats that may fail to meet the side impact performance requirements for the front seat occupants. As such, this vehicle may fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard and in the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, this may increase the risk of injury to the front seat passengers. The owner is called to the dealer to replace the problematic thorax airbag modules. So, who is the lucky one?
