阿斯顿马丁宣布召回1.8万辆汽车

Aston Martin recalls 75% of the cars it has built since 2008

Have you bought an Aston Martin in the last five years? Chances are you need to take it back to the showroom.

你在过去五年里有没有买过阿斯顿马丁(Aston Martin)的汽车?没准你需要把它送回经销商的展示厅。

The British supercar manufacturer is recalling almost 18,000 cars – 75 per cent of the cars it built since 2008 – after discovering a Chinese supplier used fake materials in its cars’ accelerator pedals.

这家英国超级跑车制造商宣布召回近1.8万辆汽车,占该公司2008年以来总产量的75%,原因是该公司发现一家中国供应商在油门踏板中使用了假冒材料。

Aston Martin said it was recalling the cars because the pedal was not safe, though no accidents have been blamed on the fault.

阿斯顿马丁表示,召回汽车是因为这批踏板不安全,尽管迄今没有事故被归咎于这一缺陷。

Shenzhen Kexiang Mould Tool used counterfeit DuPont plastic when manufacturing the pedal arm, the carmaker said, adding that it would shift production of the part back to the UK as a result.

这家汽车制造商称,深圳市科翔模具公司(Shenzhen Kexiang Mould Tool)在制造踏板杆臂时使用了假冒的杜邦(DuPont)塑料,并补充说,为此,阿斯顿马丁将把这一部件的生产转移回英国。

The plastic used in the manufacturing of the pedal was not of industrial quality and as such could break under force.

踏板制造中所用的塑料达不到工业质量要求,在用力时可能折断。

“If the accelerator pedal arm breaks, the engine will return to idle and the driver will be unable to maintain or increase engine speed, increasing the risk of a crash,” the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a statement.

“如果油门踏板杆臂断裂,发动机将回到空转状态,驾驶者将无法维持或加大发动机转速,从而增加碰撞风险,”美国国家公路交通安全管理局(NHTSA)在一份声明中表示。

Shenzhen Kexiang Mould Tool could not be reached for comment on the issue. A spokesperson for Aston said the recall would result in “minimal costs” for the company.

记者无法联系上深圳市科翔模具公司请其置评。阿斯顿的一位发言人表示,公司将以“最低成本”进行召回。

Aston first revealed it had a problem with the pedals in May, announcing a recall of almost 700 cars in the US. But the carmaker discovered that the compromised part had been used much further back in its production history. After noticing that replaced pedals were also failing late last year, it realized that almost 18,000 cars needed to be recalled and refitted.

阿斯顿最初在去年5月透露踏板问题,宣布在美国召回近700辆车。但这家汽车制造商随后发现,有问题的部件可追溯到更早生产的汽车。在去年末注意到更换后的踏板也容易失灵之后,该公司意识到需要召回和改装近1.8万辆车。(FT)
