Aston Martin Recalls Vehicle After Counterfeit Materials Used By Supplier

Last week, the New York Times reported that Aston Martin was recalling more than 5,000 vehicles after it discovered that a supplier in China used counterfeit materials that could lead to a vehicle’s accelerator pedal to break.

The car manufacturer informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the recall last week. The company said that the recall involves the following vehicle models: 2008-14 DB9 and V8 Vantage, the 2009-12 DBS, the 2010-12 Rapide, the 2014 Rapide S, the 2011-12 V12 Vantage, the 2011-14 V8 Vantage S and the 2012 Virage.

This is not the first recall for the prestigious manufacturer. Last May, Aston Martin recalled 689 vehicles over concerns that throttle pedal arms might break, returning the engine to idle during use. However, following the recall, the automaker said it underestimated the number of vehicles that may be affected by the problem and increased the number of vehicles to 5,000.
