Aston Martin is recalling 169 model-year 2010-12 versions of the V12 Vantage coupe due to problems with the tire pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, the low tire pressure warning light won't illuminate until the pressure is more than 25% below the recommended level. Underinflated tires could lead to tire failure and a possible crash.
Aston Martin has not yet provided an owner notification schedule, but dealers will reprogram the software for free. Owners can call Aston Martin at 888-923-9988 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
