The 2014 Aston Martin Rapide and DB9 models both have a recall regarding the vehicle speed control and their accelerator pedal. The 2014 Aston Martin Rapide sedan and the DB9 coupe were both recalled on May 29, 2013. The reason for the recall of total potential affected units of 689 is because, due to manufacturing mistakes, the throttle pedal arm has a potential to break. The consequences to these mistakes on the units are that the engine will not work, and the driver won’t have any control to maintain or increase engine speed. Because of this mistake, there is an increase in the risk of crashing. With a starting retail price of $198,250 for the Rapid and a starting retail price of the DB9 base, you’d think this wouldn’t be an issue with such a costly fee. The recall originally began in July 19, 2013, and Aston Martin Company will notify the owners and dealers that they will replace the throttle pedal in their assemblies. The recall number is RA-03-0016, and for more information or if you’re an owner of one of these vehicles, you may contact Aston customer service at 1-888-923-9988.
