Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce has issued a recall for nearly every car it has sold in Australia over the last decade for fears of possible brake failures and vehicles catching on fire.
The recall affects over 100 cars sold since 2003 with a combined value of around $100 million, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Around 74 of the company’s flagship Phantom models sold between 2003 and 2009 and priced at up to $1.35 million, and a further 36 Rolls-Royce Ghosts sold between 2009 and 2011 and priced at $645,000, are affected.
Rolls-Royce said no accidents had been reported but the company was forced to issue a recall last night via the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s Product Safety Recalls Australia website.
Rolls-Royce owners BMW call it a defect but seasoned Rolls Royce owners call it an Authentic Touch.
