Summary:
Lamborghini is recalling certain model year 2012 Aventador vehicles manufactured July 15, 2011, through April 20, 2012 for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” The affected vehicles may have headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically.

Consequence:
An incorrect headlamp aim could reduce the drivers visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic. Either condition may increase the risk of crash.

Lamborghini will notify owners, and dealers will enable the vertical aiming and disable the horizontal aiming of the headlights, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on December 17, 2012. Owners may contact Lamborghini at 1-866-681-6276.
