Lotus is recalling 28 model-year 2013 Evora sports cars due to a missing label identifying the vehicles' temporary exemption from a federal safety requirement, as well as an incorrectly labeled date of manufacture, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Affected vehicles, manufactured between September and November 2012, were granted a temporary exemption from having to conform to federal motor vehicle passenger-side advanced airbag safety standards, but the vehicles do not contain a temporary-exemption label. Moreover, the vehicles' Federal Certification Label shows an incorrect date of manufacture. Both issues could prevent owners from determining whether recalls apply to their vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
Lotus will notify owners early this month and both labels will be replaced for free. Owners can call Lotus at 770-476-6564 or NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.Related
