2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage (6/21/2017)

Campaign Number: 17V390000
Component Name: POWER TRAIN
Manufacturer: Aston Martin The Americas
Description: Aston Martin The Americas (Aston Martin) is recalling certain 2012 V8 Vantage vehicles equipped with 6-speed Auto-Shift Manual (ASM) transmissions. A connector for the transmission fluid lines may break resulting in a hydraulic fluid leak.
Defect: The loss of hydraulic fluid may prevent the vehicle from shifting out of the gear that it is in. Additionally, if the vehicle is being driven when the fluid level significantly drops, the transmission may shift to an emergency neutral as the vehicle comes to a stop. If the driver ignores the dash warning message and exits the vehicle without applying the parking brake, the vehicle may roll away. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
Corrective Action: Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will replace the clutch pipe, connector assembly, and related brackets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 7, 2017. Owners may contact Aston Martin customer service at 1-949-379-3100. Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-07-0023.
