Lamborghini has issued a voluntary recall on certain Huracan EVO and Huracan STO models in the United States for the possibility of a defective left door outside handle mechanism that may cause the left door to not be able to be opened from the outside. Lamborghini suspects a total of 21 units to be affected, manufactured between May 02, 2022, and May 09, 2022. The VINs of these vehicles begin from ZHWUA6ZX6NLA20125 and end at ZHWUT5ZF9NLA20227.
In the document submitted to NHTSA, Lamborghini explains that the safety clip of the cable that unlatches the door when the outer handle is pulled may have not been properly positioned, and as a result, over time, the cable could become loose, resulting in a non-functional door handle and ultimately, a stuck left door (from the outside). However, do note that the door can be opened from the inside (handle) without any problem, but the problem here is in case of an emergency, first responders may not be able to open the door from the outside if the driver needs help getting out of the car, causing unnecessary delay in rescue operations.
In the document, Lamborghini also says that last month during end-of-line quality checks, it identified a case where the safety clip at the end of the Bowden cable was not correctly rotated and engaged. An internal investigation pointed at human error during this specific step of the assembling process. While an order to contain potentially affected vehicles was issued, it was already late for some of the above vehicles as they were already delivered to customers.
