Lotus Recalls Elise and Exige Vehicles at Risk of Catching Fire
Lotus has announced a recall of certain model year 2007-2008 Elise and Exige vehicles. The oil cooler line in the affected vehicles may become detached from its fitting.
A detached oil line 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.
Lotus will notify the owners of all affected vehicles, and dealers will replace the oil cooler hose fittings and the entire lateral oil cooler hose, free of charge.
The Lotus Elise and Exige vehicles included in this recall were all manufactured from December 1, 2006 through October 31, 2007.
