The recall campaign will affect 21 copies of the Huracan EVO and STI 2022 in the United States, released between May 2 and May 9 this year. These cars are being recalled due to a problem with the driver’s side door handle.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the doors of these vehicles were not assembled properly, and the safety clip of the cable that opens the door when pulling the external handle may have been incorrectly positioned.
This, in turn, may make it impossible to open the door with an external handle. NHTSA says this is a safety risk because it could prevent someone from getting out of the car in an emergency.
“The problem was first noticed in May during a quality check on an assembly line in Italy.”
The company launched an internal investigation and found that the problem could be related to the human factor during the assembly of the car, which helped Lamborghini track which cars were affected. It’s unclear how many cars outside the U.S. are included in this recall.

To solve this problem, Lamborghini will contact the owners starting from July 1. They will be asked to return their cars to the nearest dealership, where the safety clip will be moved to ensure the correct engagement of the cable and the proper functioning of the door handle.
