Aston Martin Settles with ARB for $6,500

This page finalized July 31, 2006.


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.
