Lotus has issued yet another recall for faulty oil lines

Lotus has issued yet another recall for faulty oil lines. The British automaker's latest recall covers supercharged Evora sports car from the 2011 model year.

Lotus has announced that it is recalling Evora models equipped with a supercharged engine and manual transmission from the 2011 model year due to an oil line that can become chafed and eventually rupture. The models covered by the recall were produced between September 2011 and September 2012.

This is from a USA safety administration, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and so may only affect federal cars.

There are hundreds of extant recalls across all manufacturers and many are dealt with by dealers during routine servicing. They are listed on the AA web site http://www.theaa.com/allaboutcars/recalls/index.jsp. There has been one previous EVora recall but there have been 8 against the Elise. Even the McLaren MP14 has a recall against it.

The worst aspect of this report is the white paint job which simply doesn't suit the car. Perhaps they could rcall all white ones and paint them a decent colour?
