Lamborghini Murciélago Recall: Raging Bull Fuel Leak

We have already seen a record number of car recalls in 2010, but none as exotic as this, it seems that there is a recall on the 2007 and 2008 Lamborghini Murciélago. 428 of these vehicles have a potential fuel leak problem, which in turn could cause a fire.

According to Chris Shunk from Autoblog, the Italian automaker along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have issued the recall due to a problem with the wields that hold the fuel tanks support inside. If these wields fail then the tank could fall away and separate itself from the vehicle — something that could be very dangerous.

This is a serious problem, one that you would not expect from a $350,000 exotic supercar. It shows that it does not matter how much you spend on a vehicle, they all have one thing in common — poor quality control or cheaper components.

If you are lucky or unlucky enough to own one of these Lamborghini Murciélago’s then you can head down to your nearest Raging Bull dealer, where they will repair the fuel tank free of charge.
