Are you the owner of a super luxurious land yacht also known as a Rolls-Royce?? If so, you might be receiving a letter from Rolls-Royce.
Close to every car sold in Australia over the past 10 years is being recalled including 36 Ghosts because the possibility “if the turbo cooling pump cracks, the pump electronics may smoulder, possibly causing an engine compartment fire or a vehicle fire”. In case you aren’t up to date with Ghost retail prices, they go for around $645,000 each. That’s right, each. Wait, there’s more…
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission also released simultaneously that around 74 Phantom models to be also recalled due to a “possibility of oil entering the brake booster, there may be a reduction of braking assistance and increased chance of accident occurring”. And the Phantom goes for a cool $1,000,000-1,350,000 each.
So combined there is a total value of around $100 million in cars being recalled, or the equivalent of 5,000 Nissan Tida’s at $20,000 a pop.
No incidents have been reported related to the problem, however if you are indeed affected to get in touch with your dealer to have the repair work carried out at no cost.
