PhotoAston Martin the Americas is recalling 319 model year 2017 DB11s.

The vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that may be incorrectly calibrated, resulting in the low tire pressure warning tell-tale not illuminating at the required minimum activation pressure.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."

If the driver is not warned that a tire is under-inflated, continued use may result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2017.

Owners may contact Aston Martin customer service at 1-888-923-9988. Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-13-0025.
