ASTON MARTIN SETTLES WITH ARB FOR $6,550
|Aston Martin delivered to California dealers and sold in California 131 model year 2001 and 2002 DB7 vehicles with incorrect emission labels. The mislabeling was a continuous problem that violated the Air Resources Board's test procedures and therefore California Health and Safety Code Section 43212. Section 43212 provides for a civil penalty of $50 for each vehicle, which does not comply with the procedures and is sold in California. In order to correct the problem, Aston Martin issued a service action campaign aimed at relabeling all 131 affected vehicles with correct emission labels. Aston Martin paid $6,550 to the Air Pollution Control Fund in settlement of this case and continues to relabel the vehicles until, to the best of their ability, all 131 are corrected.|
