Aston Martin Lagonda has recalled the DB9, DBS, Virage and Vanquish, over concerns an in-cabin battery supply cable could cause a fire.
If the driver seat is pushed all the way back in affected cars, it could compress (and damage) the battery supply cable.
According to the company, this can happen when the driver manually puts the seat back (likely, if they’re tall) or, in some cases, if the seat loses its calibration.
In the worst case scenario, the problem can cause smoke in the cabin and heighten the risk of fire.
A total of 463 cars, sold between July 13, 2004, and June 20, 2016, is affected – the VIN list is attached here.
Aston Martin will contact owners by mail, and ask them to contact their nearest dealer for a fix.
