Aston Martin Lagonda of North America (Aston Martin) is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 DB9 and V8 Vantage, 2009-2012 DBS, 2010-2012 Rapide, 2014 Rapide S, 2011-2012 V12 Vantage, 2011-2014 V8 Vantage S and 2012 Virage vehicles. Due to a manufacturing error, the accelerator pedal arm may break.

Aston Martin's recall number: RA-03-0017
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V010000
Component: Vehicle Speed Control
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,001

Consequence:
If the accelerator pedal arm breaks, the engine will return to idle and the driver will be unable to maintain or increase engine speed, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assemblies. The manufacturer anticipates beginning the recall campaign on, or about, February 7, 2014. Owners may contact Aston Martin customer service by calling 1-888-923-9988.

IMPORTANT: This recall supersedes recall 13V-228. Any vehicle that has been remedied under the previous recall needs to have the current remedy applied.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
