Aston Martin has recalled its DBS and Vanquish performance models, due to a potential problem with the driver’s seat.

A problem has been identified with the seat wiring loom for height-adjustable or lightweight carbon seats, which can become compressed if the seat occupant requires the seat to be in the full-rearward position.

Should this occur, the loom may overheat which could cause damage to the wiring insulation. After repeated damage, a short circuit could result leading to a fire in extreme circumstances.

Affected models were sold in Australia between September 2010 and February of this year, with manufacturing dates between February 2007 and November 2015.

A total of 89 DBS and Vanquish examples are affected.

The recall program will see a new cable guide installed to prevent crimping. The process should take around 30 minutes at no charge to customers.

Aston Martin will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
