Lotus Recalls Elise and Exige (2005-06) Due to Oil Leaks
Back in July, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) started an ivestigation targeting oil cooler leaks for the Elise and Exige models produced between June 1, 2004 and November 30, 2006, with the move generating the recall.
It actually all started when 17 owners filed complaints of oil leaks onto the right rear tires, which caused handling problems. The reports included mentions of handling problmens caused by this, with one owner reporting a fire.
