Consumers have filed a total of 2 complaints related to Aston Martin EXTERIOR LIGHTING.
Brake lights had water condensation inside, causing the leds inside to short out. This prevents other drivers from being aware of braking, potentially leading to collisions.
I've had in the past a 2009 v8 vantage (vin (xxxxx)) which tail lights allowed condensation in them and eventually failed , a 2015 v8gt vantage (vin (xxxxx)) in which the right tail light had condensation - replaced under warranty, and a 2015 v12s vantage (vin (xxxxx)) who had a tail light condensation and both headlights fail when i owned it. I recently purchased a 2017 v12s vantage (vin entered previously) - brand new a few months ago - both rear tail lights have condensation. The issue is that any water in the tail lights eventually destroys the led circuit boards and then there are no tail lights. The only vantage i've owned that did not have this problem was a 2007. This is a well known problem, and a safety problem as well as when not under warranty an extremely expensive fix. It should have been a recall a long time ago. Pictures are from my current car. I did not even have the car a week, before the issue started up.
