Anything more official to post on this? The prior 2011 recall was for the oil feed lines to the VVTS as extracted:
" NHTSA Campaign Number: 12V477000
LOTUS IS RECALLING MODEL YEAR 2011 EVORA SUPERCHARGED VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM
FEBRUARY 2011 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2011.
These vehicles maybe equipped with a three-piece oil feed pipe with a flexible hose section. This engine mounted oil feed pipe, used to supply oil to the engine cylinder head, can rupture. "
Here in this thread it is now being called prior oil cooler line recall and now VVTS line recall. As the Evora never had an oil cooler line recall, I tend to believe this is one and the same as last month’s report.
