Aston Martin DBS (2007 – 2015)

Published on 13. 05. 2016

Problem description:

When the front, right seat is operated to rearward position, the seat runner can compress the battery supply cable. If the cable is repeatedly compressed, the insulation of the electrical cable can be damaged and a short-circuit can occur between the cable and the runner, resulting in smoke in the vehicle cabin. The smoke could cause the driver to be distracted and increase the risk of an accident.

The recall concerns certain vehicles built between March 2007 and November 2015.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Aston Martin dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
