Aston Martin, Tesla, BMW, Rolls-Royce recalls

Ferrari and, of course, Toyota have been garnishing a lot of attention lately with some major recalls making big headlines. Now it is time for Aston Martin, Tesla, Rolls-Royce, and BMW to steal some of the spotlight with a round of their own recalls hitting the auto blogs.

Aston Martin is recalling its entire 2007–2008 lineup due to a suspension malfunction that could result in a crash. Affecting the 2007–2008 V-8 Vantage, DB9, and DBS, a cam bolt in the front bottom suspension arm could crack and allow the lower control arm to move. Movement of the lower control arm could result in a crash due to the influence it has on the driver’s control of the steering wheel.

Tesla is recalling its new 2.0 and 2.5 Roadster models due to a possible fire hazard. Behind the front headlamp is a low-voltage cable that could short circuit and ignite a carbon fiber panel nearby. In total, 439 Roadsters are affected by the recall.

BMW is recalling some recently manufactured V-8 and V-12 powered sedans and coupes due to a leak that could develop in the hydraulic braking system and lead to a loss of braking power. The defective brakes affect 198,000 5-, 6-, and 7-Series models and all 2003–2010 Rolls-Royce Phantoms and 2007–2008 BMW Alpina B7 sedans.
