Rolls-Royce recalls Cullinan SUVs due to dim lightsSeptember 13, 2019
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced the recall of the 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan models.
A report published by NHTSA shows that approximately 454 luxury SUVs assembled between December 1, 2018 and July 18, 2019 may not fully comply with the FMVSS 108 certificate (lamps, reflectors and related equipment), section 220.127.116.11 and table IX. From a layman’s point of view, this means that the taillights may not have been manufactured to specifications due to differences in the supplier’s manufacturing process and are not bright enough.
NHTSA states that dim taillights can be poorly visible to other road users following the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and increase the risk of collision.
Rolls-Royce discovered the problem in late July after testing. He then checked the supplier’s manufacturing process and later discovered that the problem could affect several hundred copies of the SUV. The British automaker did not receive any reports of accidents or injuries related to this problem.
It is not entirely clear exactly how many cars are affected by the recall. One NHTSA safety report states that the problem was detected on 422 machines, and also states that approximately 454 Culinnan instances may not fully comply with the above rules. In any case, in the near future the company will notify all owners of these vehicles of the need to come to the service center. All work on the replacement of the rear lights will be carried out free of charge.
