They say Rolls-Royce vehicles don’t breakdown – they “fail to proceed”.
We wonder then if a product recall order for just about every Roll’s sold in Australia over the past decade will be dubbed something like an “unscheduled temporary dealership reunion”?
Our friends over at Carsguide report the recall is centred on brake safety issues with concerns some Rolls-Royce vehicles could catch fire.
The recalls affect 36 Rolls-Royce Ghost sedans sold between 2009 and 2011.
Government agency Product Safety Australia says if the turbo cooling pump cracks, the pump electronics may smoulder, “possibly causing an engine compartment fire or a vehicle fire”.
74 Rolls-Royce Phantom sedans sold between 2003-2009 are also part of the recall.
“Due to the possibility of oil entering the brake booster, there may be a reduction in power braking assistance and an increased chance of an accident occurring,” Product Safety Australia said.
In a letter to customers, Rolls-Royce said there had been no reported incidents.
The repair work will be carried out at no cost to customers.
