What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing defect, the driver and passenger side A-pillar trims may have been fitted incorrectly. As a result, in an event of the side curtain airbags deployment the force from the airbag could cause the A-pillars cover to detach.

What are the hazards?

If the A-pillar trim detaches, plastic fragments may be propelled towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted directly by their Lotus dealer to arrange for replacement of the vehicle A-pillar trim assembly, free of charge.
