Recall Roundup: Feds Say Lotus Evora Models Need New Labels

6/3/2013
The 2013 Lotus Evora has been granted a temporary exemption from federal requirements to contain advanced passenger side air bag technology. In accordance with this exemption, the 2013 Evora must contain a temporary exemption label. However, 28 units of the low-volume sports car were built between September 2012, and November 2012, without the required temporary exemption label.

Furthermore, these 28 Lotus Evoras display an incorrect date of manufacture on the Federal Certification Label, which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says could prevent owners from receiving future recall notices. That could lead to a situation where a vehicle defect goes unaddressed, potentially increasing the risk of a crash or occupant injury.

As a result, the NHTSA is requesting that these 28 Lotus Evora vehicles return to the dealership to have a new Federal Certification Label installed and the missing temporary exemption label applied. The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 13V216000, and the Lotus recall number is 2013/02R. Evora owners can contact Lotus with any questions by dialing 1-770-476-6564.
