If you purchased a 2015 or 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV, it is time to slow down and take it easy around the turns. There are eight SV coupes and roadsters that are now part of a recall. The bolts that are used in the wheel hub have proven to loosen over time. These bolts are utilized to center and support the brake discs to the wheel hub. With continued driving, the wheel may completely detach. This would greatly increase the risk of an accident.
Lamborghini will begin to notify consumers on August 31, and it shouldn’t take as long as the vehicle is pretty rare. Some may even just be sitting on display- but it is still important to get them in good driving condition. Future buyers will feel confident knowing that the previous owner did all that they could to keep the vehicle in working order and pristine condition. Current owners will feel confident taking the car out for a night on the town, knowing that their safety is a top priority and all recalled parts have been fixed.
With fast cars like the Lamborghini Aventador, it is difficult to imagine the damage that could be caused if the recalled issues weren’t addressed. Dealers will be replacing the bolts at no charge to the consumer. Simply make an appointment with your local dealer and they will be happy to assist with the recall issue. The new bolts that are used will have thread locking fluid for added safety. The appointment won’t take long and your vehicle should be ready for pick up in a timely manner.
