Vehicles Affected: Approximately 6,100 model-year 2010-15 Aston Martin DB9, model-year 2010-12 DBS, model-year 2010-16 V8 Vantage, model-year 2012 Virage, model-year 2010-16 Rapide, model-year 2014-16 Vanquish, model-year 2011-16 V12 Vantage and model-year 2012-13 V12 Zagato luxury sports cars
The Problem: The interior door-unlocking mechanism may not function when the vehicle has been locked from the outside. If an occupant cannot open the doors from the inside, they may become trapped inside, increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the software to disable the double-locking feature for free.
What Owners Should Do: Aston Martin will begin notifying owners on Aug. 1. Owners can call the automaker at 888-923-9988, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
