Bugatti Have A Very Different Method Of Recalling Their Cars!

"Flying Doctors" and House Calls, All Very Different To A Normal Recall Procedure!

2y ago


When a manufacturer recalls one of their models, the process is normally very simple. Owners will receive a letter in the post, instructing them to go to their local dealer to get the problem sorted. With a model worth over £2 million, Bugatti have chosen to be a little different.

The Bugatti Chiron is powered by an 8.0L quad-turbo charged W16 engine, producing 1,479BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed limited to 261MPH.

Bugatti have said that 47 Chiron models may have improper seat welds

The company announced a recall of 47 Chiron models last week, stating that 1% of the models possibly had bad welds in the seat recliner brackets. This 1% represents less than half of one Chiron model! Not only will Bugatti customers receive a letter, but will also be contacted by Bugatti's "Flying Doctors", via phone and email to arrange an appointment to have their vehicle inspected.

The Flying Doctors will then retrieve the model from it's owner, before transporting the Chiron in an enclosed truck to the nearest Bugatti dealer. If the vehicle is found with an improper weld, the entire seating assembly will be replaced.

  • What punishment did the welder get for his poor quality work? Was it a robot ? What punishment do you give a robot welder? Over tighten his nuts?

  • Someone or something distracted on the assembly line perhaps (if you can call it a production line)? I'd expect a truck arriving with a marque, decked out lounge area, canopies, champagne and a Concierge service. All this while you wait for your car to be inspected at home. A micro robot welder to get in and fix the problem if needs be, then a guests weekend in at the George 5th in Paris for the trouble. Ha ha.
