Lotus Cars USA is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Elise and Exige, and 2011 Evora vehicles. The oil cooler hose on the affected vehicles may detach from its fitting.

A detached oil hose could spray oil on a tire, increasing the risk of a crash, or it could spray oil throughout the engine compartment, increasing the risk of a fire.

Owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified by Lotus, and dealers will replace the oil cooler hose fittings on the Elise and Exige vehicles, and will replace the oil cooler hose assemblies on the Evora vehicles. All service and repairs related to this recall will be performed free of charge.
