Approximately 2,700 model-year 2016-20 McLaren 720S sports cars, model-year 2017-19 570GT sports cars, model-year 2019 Senna sports cars, and model-year 2020 GT sports cars are being recalled due to fuel tank issues. The foam pad underneath the fuel tank can absorb moisture and corrode the tank, possibly causing a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire.
McLaren has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 646-429-8916 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To remedy the issue, dealers will replace the foam pad, and inspect and replace the fuel tank, as necessary, on the 720S, 570GT and Senna models. A fix for the GT is still being finalized.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
