Aston Martin makes many lust-worthy machines, but the V12 Vantage is one of our favorites. Sad day then, because Aston has just issued a recall notice for the fire-breathing piece of British steel.
The issue involves 169 V12 Vantage Coupe models built between 2009-2012. The tire-pressure monitoring system does not comply with Federal standards in regards to its alarm levels. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138 states that when tire pressure is “equal to or less than either the pressure 25 percent below” recommended pressure, the driver must be notified. Aston’s system doesn’t notify owners until past that 25-percent mark, and the system must be reprogrammed to meet Federal requirements.
We are just glad to see that one of our favorite cars is not being recalled for some massive failure like an imploding engine.
