Back in 1907, Rolls-Royce presented the Silver Ghost as the “Best car in the world.” Unfortunately, more than a century later, the Rolls Royce Ghost models manufactured between September 2009 to September 2010 are now facing a recall pertaining to an electric auxiliary water pump that can overheat and potentially cause a fire.
It would seem that even “the best” can still be imperfect. Earlier, there have been reports regarding how BMW‘s 5-series, 7-series, X5 and X6 models are at risk of engine fires as well. Since the Rolls Royce power plant is a turbocharged application of BMW’s V12, it must be placed under investigation too.
Only 589 affected Rolls-Royce models have been produced during this period. Rolls-Royce will begin making necessary repairs on these models free of charge beginning later this month.
