Lotus Recall Lookup
One of the recalls issued by Lotus was due to possible oil leaks in 5,000 Elise and Exige models built from December 1, 2006, through October 31, 2007. The oil cooler hose on these models may detach from their fitting and leak oil into a tire, causing problems with handling and increasing the risk of a crash.
