Lamborghini Calls Back Uru Sedan for Backup Camera Problem
» Posted January 4, 2023 Resources | Share This Post
Backing up may be a little more difficult for some Lamborghini sedan drivers.
The luxury automaker recently announced that it is recalling a limited number of Uru sedans. Lamborghini told federal regulators that a defect may render the display and rearview camera inoperable.
“Due to a hardware issue, the infotainment main unit in the center console may become damaged when the driver turns off the vehicle and the main unit shuts down,” Lamborghini said in a notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “Upon the next start, the damaged infotainment unit would not work. In this case, all functionalities including the rearview camera image would not be available.”
“An inoperative rearview camera display reduces the driver’s rear visibility, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.
The recall covers less than 50 2022 Uru sedans that were produced in September 2021.
Lamborghini said in the NHTSA filing that it plans to notify owners of recalled cars by December 16.
“Affected vehicles will receive a new infotainment main unit at no cost to customers,” Lamborghini said. “Lamborghini will not offer a reimbursement plan under this recall as all affected vehicles are still under warranty.”
Other Lamborghini Recalls
This is just the latest recall impacting Lamborghini and people who own its vehicles.
The company announced over the summer that it was recalling a limited number of Huracan EVO sportscars. The vehicles, which start at more than $200,000 apiece, are equipped with faulty driver-side door handles, the company said.
A year earlier, Lamborghini called back certain 220 Aventador SVJ coupes over a defect that could cause the supercars’ hoods to fly open without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Italian auto manufacturer is not alone. Major carmakers routinely recall scores of vehicles over a wide range of defects that can put everyone on the road at risk. These recalls often come long after the cars have been sold to buyers who are completely unaware of the problems.
The good news for Lamborghini and other vehicle owners in California is that you have some valuable rights and options under the state’s lemon law.
The lemon law requires carmakers to perform a full range of repairs on vehicles while they are under warranty. It also forces auto manufacturers to buy back (or replace, in some cases) cars that they are not able or flat-out refuse to fix. That includes compensating the owner for the vehicle’s purchase price, as well as other related fees and costs.
