Lamborghini Recalls Urus SUV Over Risk Hoods Fly Open At High Speeds

Lamborghini has detailed in a safety recall report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that over 2,000 of its $200,000 SUVs are at risk of the hood flying open at high speeds. 

Lamborghini’s Part 573 Safety Recall Report affects 2,133 Urus vehicles. This type of recall means the manufacturer identified a safety defect and filed with the NHTSA. Manufacturers must submit these reports in a timely fashion after identifying the defects.

“In August 2023, Lamborghini received from Europe two non-safety related warranty claims concerning misalignment between the carbon hood and the fender; Lamborghini launched an investigation with the supplier for hood vibration/noises and/or gaps and loose hood,” the Volkswagen AG-owned manufacturer noted in the report. 

Lamborghini explained that “deformed rivet studs” around the “hood latch strikers” at speeds over 94 mph may create small gaps between the hood and front bumper and allow air entry that, over time, could cause “stress can cause the latch system to fail and separate the hood latch striker from the hood.” 

What does this mean for Lamborghini’s top-selling model globally? Well, at high speeds, the hoods might abruptly fly open, impairing the driver’s vision.
