Veyron SS


Η NHTSA ανακοίνωσε όχι μια, ούτε δύο, αλλά τρεις ανακλήσεις της Bugatti Veyron στις Η.Π.Α. Η πρώτη αφορά 72 Veyron παραγωγής μεταξύ 2006-2010 και Veyron Grand Sport παραγωγής 2009-2010, στις οποίες ο δείκτης ένδειξης του οργάνου βενζίνης μπορεί να δείχνει πως υπάρχει περισσότερο καύσιμο από αυτό που πραγματικά βρίσκεται στο ρεζερβουάρ της Veyron. Η Bugatti θα επιδιορθώσει το πρόβλημα τοποθετώντας νέα μονάδα ελέγχου και αναβαθμίζοντας το λειτουργικό.

Η δεύτερη ανάκληση αφορά 13 Veyron παραγωγής μεταξύ 2006-2008 στις οποίες το καλώδιο του θετικού πόλου της μπαταρίας μπορεί να διαβρωθεί, κάτι που θα οδηγούσε σε υπερθέρμανση του καλωδίου. Στα αυτοκίνητα αυτά η Bugatti θα προχωρήσει στην αντικατάσταση του καλωδίου.

Τέλος, η τρίτη ανάκληση αφορά 87 Veyron παραγωγής 2006-2008, Veyron Grand Sport παραγωγής 2012-2012 και Veyron Super Sport παραγωγής 2011-2012 στις οποίες οι πλάκες αλουμινίου που βρίσκονται κάτω από το όχημα και λειτουργούν υποστηρικτικά κατά τη διάρκεια ανύψωσης, μπορεί να διαβρωθούν και ενδεχομένως να αποκολληθούν από το supercar. Στη περίπτωση που αυτό συμβεί ενώ η Veyron κινείται στον δρόμο, οι πλάκες θα μπορούσαν να αποτελέσουν κίνδυνο για τους άλλους οδηγούς. Η Bugatti θα επιδιορθώσει το συγκεκριμένο πρόβλημα τοποθετώντας επιπλέον πριτσίνια στις συγκεκριμένες πλάκες.
