Lamborghini Recalls 26 Cars Due to a New Employee’s Fault

The manufacturer will have to recall all cars produced in December and January.

The recall includes cars sold in the US market. The problem is with the door handle locking and unlocking system. The system can fail at any moment, which is extremely dangerous.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Lamborghini indicates that the cause of the defect was a new employee. He was not sufficiently trained and made a mistake when attaching the handle wires, making them too short. It is worth noting that these doors are unlocked from the outside as expected.

Unfortunately, the problem was not detected immediately, but only during the final quality control. Presumably, it affected 26 supercars. They were manufactured between the beginning of December and the end of January.

Lamborghini promises to contact the owners of potentially problematic supercars as soon as possible, so that they pass the cars to dealers to replace the internal handles. The recall campaign will begin in early May.

The manufacturer plans to assemble 1,700 Aventador SVJ models in total. This is 900 coupes and 800 roadsters. Regardless of the body type, these supercars will be equipped with a 6.5-liter 770-hp V12 engine and the ALA 2.0 active aerodynamic system, which changes the downforce depending on the driving situation and distributes the air flow around the car.
