Aston Martin recalls its cars because of problems with the gearboxesJanuary 5, 2018
When it comes to inexpensive, mass models, then revocable campaigns will not surprise anyone. However, luxury sports cars such as Aston Martin, which are made almost manually, rarely get birth defects, but sometimes it happens.
According to the Australian portal Caradvice, under review in the local market are models DB9, DBS, Rapide, Virage and Vanquish, equipped with a six-speed “automatic” Touchtronic second generation.
In particular, cars that received the above transmission, can present an unpleasant surprise to their owners: they can simply roll if they park on uneven terrain. This can happen after the driver has removed the ignition key from the lock, the engine at that moment will not be fully stopped, and the gearbox and “handbrake” will not be activated in the parking mode.
The review includes 391 copies, produced from December 2007 to October 2014.
It is noteworthy that under a similar review, recently received about 5,000 copies of Aston Martin, sold in the US market. Apparently, this defect may appear on cars sold in other countries.
