    Lamborghini recalls model year 2011-2014 Gallardo Coupes and Spyders

    Drivers may not be warned of safety system problems

    Automobili Lamborghini is recalling 1,152 model year 2011-2014 Gallardo Coupes and Spyders.

    The Engine Control Unit software may erase trouble codes after the ignition is turned off, not illuminating warning lamps and preventing drivers from being warned of safety system problems the next time that they are driving.

    If the warning lamps do not indicate a safety system failure such as an engine or fuel injection system malfunction, continuing to drive the vehicle with a faulty system and no warning can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

    What to do

    Lamborghini will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the engine software with the appropriate procedure, free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin December 14,2018.
