Aston Martin—Aston Martin DBS & Vanquish models

Identifying features

Please see identifying numbers list attached.

What are the defects?

In some circumstances when the right front seat is operated to its fully rearward position, the seat runner can compress the battery supply cable and cause it to potentially over heat.

What are the hazards?

If the battery cable is repeatedly compressed, the insulation of the cable can be damaged and a short circuit could occur between the cable and the runner, posing a potential fire hazard.

What should consumers do?

Notification to customers will be managed by the national Aston Martin dealer network. Consumers should then contact their selling or local Aston Martin dealer to arrange to have the remedial work carried out.
