It is my belief that they will do nothing and see if they get away with it.
Wow, I wonder where Lotus got the money to cover all of that.Have just received confirmation - [I had a hose/fitting failure] 3wks ago - its been at dealership since-they are waiting for a [brand new] engine [long block] to be delivered in 3wks,then replacing all oil hoses,fittings and the oil cooler-apparently this was determined from doing a oil analysis- I believe I will also receive a new 3yr warranty on engine [3yr-36000mi ?] quite pleased
I got a recall notice for my Elise but not my Exige.If your car was built before Nov 06, your car will need to be taken in.
It's on the sticker inside the door next to the air intake.
I just called the dealer and I was told Lotus hasn't quite yet instructed dealers on how to solve the issue and that parts haven't been delivered yet. Affected customers will be notified when the fix is ready to be performed.
It makes no difference to the recall laws if you are the orginal owner. Tell the Feds (or Lotus) your contact info and your VIN and they will put you on the list for all notifications. Everyone should do this for all their cars so that they don't miss any important notifications.
Losing 20 pounds is nice, but moving weight to the heavy end of the car makes more sense for a drag-racer than for an autocrosser.may want to consider a new oil cooling setup. BOE did mine - $640.($400 kit, $240 labor) Sleep at night and lose 20lbs of weight. ( And gain a few pounds of oil pressure, and be changing ALL your oil when you do your changes. No more 12-13 quarts of partially contaminated lubricants orbiting your car. Waiting to fail. Just 5 quarts +/-. Really nice lines & CLAMPS/FITTINGS. No more worrying about this time bomb.)
Lotus dealer can run the VIN.I'm the recent 2nd owner of the car where can I check to see if the oil line recall repair has been done to the car? If I give the lotus dealer my VIN can they tell me if it was done?
