Aston is recalling more cars than it built last year.
Aston Martin has issued two separate recalls that cover over 5,400 cars. To put that figure into perspective, the British firm built about 3,600 cars last year.
The first recall affects 3,493 examples of the DB9, DBS, Rapide, Virage, and Vanquish. The defective cars were built between 2009 and 2016. All of them suffer from a problem that "can cause the transmission park pawl not to engage," Automotive News reports.
"If the park pawl does not engage and the vehicle is stopped on a slope and exited without the parking brake being applied, the vehicle may unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of a crash," Aston explained in a statement.
The second recall affects 1,953 examples of the DB9 and DBS made between 2005 and 2009. The battery cables pose a fire risk if damaged, according to the company. While battery cables aren't a wear and tear item, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes the driver's seat can damage them if it's in the rear-most position.
It's unclear whether any accidents or injuries are linked to either defect. Aston will begin fixing both cars in the coming weeks.
Aston Martin issued a third recall last week in China. It wants to examine 1,500 cars sold in the world's biggest market "after reviewing the security risks of all its models."
