It’s not every day that you hear about a Rolls-Royce recall but it looks like we’re about to witness history, thanks to a historic model nonetheless. The Cullinan, the brand’s first ever SUV by all accounts and measurements is the target of a NHTSA recall in the US. According to the governing body, some of the $325,000 cars delivered in the us might have some issues with their headlamps and other reflective devices.
To be more precise, 403 cars will be called in to check that the brake lamps are up to par with the US specifications. According to the NHTSA, the lamps might not be bright enough and could lead to reduced visibility on the road. That, in turn, could have adverse effects like unintentional crashes and so on.
The statement issued also says the issue might be due to a problem in the supplier’s production process and not Rolls-Royce’s fault. At the moment, BMW and Rolls-Royce are yet to report any issues due to this particular problem these cars might have.
Rolls-Royce dealers have already been notified of the recall, while owners will be notified by first class mail with the instructions. As with any other recall, the remedy to the brake lights will be done free of charge by authorized Rolls-Royce Cars dealers. Rolls-Royce New Vehicle Limited Warranty program will also cover the service in case the defect happens before the recall.
Owner notification will begin to roll out on October 14, 2019. However, if you’re among these 403 owners of a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, we suggest that you contact your certified dealer immediately for the said remedy.
