Lotus is recalling 80 model-year 2011 versions of the Evora coupe due to problems with the engine oil feed pipe, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from February through September 2011 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and use an engine oil feed pipe that could rupture. This could lead to a fire.
Lotus has not yet provided NHTSA with an owner notification schedule, but dealers will replace the oil feed pipe for free. Owners can call Lotus at 800-245-6887 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
