Lamborghini Huracan Recall Is Almost Too Small To Notice

Recall / Comments

It might be, if it weren't a potentially serious problem.

The Lamborghini Huracan doesn't have the same production numbers as a mass-produced car like a Honda Civic. Ideally, that means each Lambo is given the utmost attention, craftsmanship and the MSRP reflects that. However, sometimes some things can slip through the cracks. But these issues can sometimes be magnified due to those low production numbers.

Lamborghini has issued a recall for both the Huracan EVO and the Huracan STO. More to the point, 100% of the 21 units made thus far are said to suffer from the defect. Thankfully, it's rather minor with a door not opening, or is it?

There's a reason we used the word "too small" to describe the recall. It might sound like a non-issue when these cars typically do thousands of miles across the first ten years of their lives, but a busted door handle can be an issue in an emergency. Here's how Lamborghini describes the issue:

"It might not be possible to open the unlocked door on the left side by using the outside door handle, posing an entrapment risk. This failure could lead to the inability to operate the handle from outside of the vehicle with a safety risk in case of emergency. The door can be opened from the inside at any time."

At least no one will be getting stuck in their 640-hp V10 supercars, though we can think of worse places to be stuck. Apparently, all this was caused by a "production deviation" during the assembly of the component, which means the security lock of the Bowden cable (the part that actually pulls the door latch) may not be properly engaged or disengaged. The result is, as Lambo said, a sticky door.

Still, a door getting stuck closed could be a problem. We mentioned the fact that it's a safety concern, but it's also frustrating for owners, and Lamborghini as a brand. Lambo has worked hard to build a reputation for making usable, reliable supercars, and something so simple as a door failure doesn't look great.

Of course, if you paid upwards of $328K for a Huracan STO, you'd be pretty frustrated if the doors didn't open one day. Still, in the grand scheme of car ownership, it's not like these buyers are expecting a Camry experience.
