The British luxury sports carmaker announced the
expanded recall on Wednesday after discovering a Chinese
sub-supplier was using counterfeit plastic material in the
pedals. This move replaced a recall announced last May and
expanded in October.
Aston Martin said in a statement that it flagged the cost of the
recall in late November. The figure does not include the
potential cost of moving production of the pedal.
Aston Martin's owners include Italian private equity fund
Investindustrial, Kuwait-based Adeem Investment and Prime Wagon.
Germany's Daimler AG <DAIGn.DE> also has stake of less than 5
percent in the British automaker.
