    Manufacturer:McLaren Automotive Incorporated
    Manufacture Dates:03/01/2013 - 10/31/2015
    Potential Units Affected:122

    Defect Description:

    McLaren Automotive Incorporated (McLaren) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 P1 hybrid vehicles manufactured March 1, 2013, to October 31, 2015.

    If the hood opens while driving it may increase the risk of a crash.
