Rolls-Royce is having trouble with a circuit board that controls a water pump — and it has resulted in a recall.
The very British, very snooty brand is recalling 69 model-year 2011 turbocharged versions of its Ghost sedan to address the problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A total of 69 vehicles equipped with turbocharged eight- or 12-cylinder engines are being recalled.
This is no mere drip. In the affected vehicles, the circuit board that controls the electric auxiliary water pump could overheat. This could lead to a vehicle fire, and believe me, you don’t want a fire after laying down $200,000 or more to buy a single car. Several of parent BMW’s vehicles also were recalled for the same problem.
Rolls-Royce will notify owners this month, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Rolls-Royce at 877-877-3735 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more.
