Share this Article

Lotus has issued out a recall for its 2011 Evora sports car for faulty oil lines.

The British automaker had similar recalls in the past for its Exige and Elise models from the 2011 and 2012 model years. This time around, it’s the 2011 Evora powered by the supercharged engine and equipped with a manual transmission that is at fault. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an oil line on the Evora’s engine cooler can be chafed and eventually rupture, causing the vehicle to lose all its oil.

No accidents or injuries have been reported related to the recall, which affects about 80 vehicles in the U.S.
