Aston Martins Might Slip Out of Park

Aston Martins Might Slip Out of Park Featured

Aston Martin is recalling 179 2011-2014 V8 Vantage vehicles equipped with 7-speed Auto-Shift Manual (ASM) "SportShift II" transmissions.
A connector for the clutch fluid line may break, resulting in a hydraulic fluid leak.
The loss of hydraulic fluid may prevent the vehicle from shifting out of the gear that it is in. Additionally, if the vehicle is being driven when the fluid level significantly drops, the transmission may shift to an emergency neutral as the vehicle comes to a stop. 
If the driver ignores the dash warning message and exits the vehicle without applying the parking brake, the vehicle may roll away. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will install a support bracket to hold the pipe securely in position, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin July 7.
Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-07-0024.
