Recall Campaign: Engine Hood Hinge Screws replacement on Lamborghini

Aventador SVJ Coupe MY 2018 to 2021

S. Agata Bolognese, Italy, March 23, 2021

 

Dear valued Lamborghini Sales and Service Manager,

 

In the course of continuous product monitoring and internal tests, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. has determined that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2018-2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe.

 

On some of the affected vehicles, loss of torque of engine hood hinge screws may result in an unlatched hood. This could increase the likelihood that with a combination of factors such as high speed under strong vertical and longitudinal acceleration, the wind force is sufficient to inadvertently flip open the hood and could fully detach from the vehicle, creating a road hazard and increasing the safety-risk of a crash for following traffic.

 

For the reasons listed above, in a precautionary manner, Automobili Lamborghini decided to launch a worldwide recall campaign to rework the involved cars. The repair instructions are now be available on the HUB section “Service and Recall Campaigns” as well as on LIASS.

 

In order to further support you in answering questions to your customers, we are attaching the FAQ (Frequent Asked Question) you must follow. Since these activities are extremely important, we are confident you will make every effort to ensure that the vehicles are repaired in the shortest time possible.

 

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact your responsible Area Manager.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.
