Vehicles Affected: Approximately 420 model-year 2017-18 Lotus Evora 400 sports cars
The Problem: The toe board in the passenger footwell lacks stiffness, allowing the knee of an unbelted occupant to contact the rigid structure of the car in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the toe board with a new design with appropriate stiffness for free.
