Aston Martin Recall Over Accelerator Defect
Luxury car firm Aston Martin has recalled 17,590 of its sports cars due to a defect.
The British manufacturer, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire, said there had not been any reports of injuries or accidents caused by the problem with the accelerator pedal.
The models affected are left-hand drive cars built between November 2007 and December last year, and right-hand drive vehicles made between May 2012 and December 2013.
New Vanquish models are not affected.
A spokeswoman for the firm said: "Although there has been no report of any accidents or injuries involving the throttle pedal, Aston Martin's commitment to customer safety is paramount, which is why the company is taking the action.
"The recall work takes up to an hour to complete and will be carried out with no charge to the customer."
Aston Martins have famously been the vehicle of choice for James Bond while the company was voted second in the CoolBrands list last year.
The company, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last year, sold around 3,400 vehicles in 2012.
