Aston Martin has issued a recall notice for the DB11 V8 and V12, over concerns the driver’s airbag may inadvertently deploy.
The British marque reports the combination of a damaged steering column module clock spring and insufficient grounding could, when subject to an electrostatic discharge, set off the driver’s airbag. The problem is accompanied by an airbag warning light on the dashboard.
A total of 91 cars sold between August 31, 2016 and January 9, 2018 are affected by the recall. A VIN list is attached here.
Aston Martin will contact the owners by mail, and advise them to contact their nearest dealer for a fix.
