New Lamborghini employee's mistake triggers recall of Aventador SVJ
If you thought you were having a bad start to 2020, take a moment to imagine how this poor employee must feel. After landing their dream job at the Lamborghini factory, they received 'inadequate training' and installed the door locking mechanism cable incorrectly on 26 Aventador SVJ's. Over time, the mechanism would eventually fail, leaving the owner trapped inside.
You might be thinking 'well there are worse places to be stuck than inside an Aventador' and you'd be right, but that's probably doing little to ease the new Lambo employees pain. Of the 900 Aventador SVJ's that will be built, that's 3% of them affected by their screw-up.
Although this is the first recall for the current year SVJ, the Aventador has been the subject of numerous recalls for:
Loose brake disc bolts causing potential wheel detachment
Engine stalling while downshifting
Gasoline spilling onto exhaust causing potential fire
Fortunately, it's a minor fix with just the interior door handle needing to be removed and a new locking mechanism installed. Lamborghini is attempting to make contact with the owners of the affected cars but have refused to comment on the fate of the employee who caused the recall.
