Recalls for 2009 Lotus Exige S 240
2009 LOTUS EXIGE
NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V280000
Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE
Manufacturer: Lotus Cars USA, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 11/01/2007 - 07/30/2011
Potential Units Affected: 860
Defect Description:
Lotus Cars USA, Inc. (Lotus) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Elise and Exige vehicles manufactured from November 2007 to July 2011, and 2011 Evora vehicles manufactured September 2010 through September 2011. The oil cooler hose may detach from its fitting.
Consequence:
A detached oil hose could spray oil on a tire, increasing the risk of a crash, or it could spray oil throughout the engine compartment, increasing the risk of a fire.
Action to take:
Lotus will notify owners, and dealers will replace the oil cooler hose fittings on the Elise and Exige vehicles and will replace the oil cooler hose assemblies on the Evora vehicles, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Lotus at 1-800-245-6887. Lotus' number for this recall is 201401R (Elise/Exige), and 2014/02R (Evora). Note: This recall is an expansion of recalls 11V-510 and 13V-041.
2009 LOTUS EXIGE
NHTSA Campaign ID: 09V179000
Component: WHEELS:CAP/COVER/HUB
Manufacturer: LOTUS CARS USA, INC.
Manufacture Dates: 06/20/2008 - 05/05/2009
Potential Units Affected: 87

IF THAT OCCURS, AN INSECURE HUB COULD LEAD TO DEGRADATION IN VEHICLE HANDLING, AND A RUBBING NOISE FROM THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE.
Consequence:
IF THE PROBLEM IS NOT ADDRESSED PROMPTLY, THE DRIVER COULD LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE, RESULTING IN A CRASH.
Action to take:
LOTUS WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND REPAIR THE VEHICLES FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JUNE 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT LOTUS TOLL-FREE AT 1-800-245-6887.
