The Hazard!

Aston Martin has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists on DB11 models manufactured between November 2015 and December 2017. On certain DB11 vehicles an electrostatic discharge (ESD), when combined with a damaged steering column control module clock spring and an insufficient grounding of the steering column upper, may lead to an inadvertent deployment of the driver airbag, which can increase the risk of injury and a crash. We would like to assure you that your vehicle remains safe to drive unless the Airbag / Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) light and warning message are shown in the instrument cluster. If the Airbag/SRS light and warning message are shown in the instrument cluster, please do not drive the vehicle.

What to do...

Please contact your Aston Martin dealer as soon as possible to arrange a date for the repair. They will be able to fully explain why this Recall Action is necessary. Instructions for making this correction have been sent to your dealer.
