The Hazard

 

During the course of continuous product monitoring and internal tests, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. has determined that under certain driving conditions, (accelerator pedal released in the idle approach to a stop), the engine may stall without warning. In some conditions the engine management software doesn't assure the minimum idle speed in order to maintain the engine running with the consequence of a possible engine stall.

 

What to do

 

Owners are to be instructed to contact their closest Lamborghini dealership to arrange a visit to update the engine and gearbox management control units software by download.

@RunningMan I will need therapy if this continues and I am forced to drive a 2000 NZ new Corolla with 170,000km on the clock

 

Oh wait hang on!

That's quite annoying, I had my 2019 Lambo serviced before lockdown, does this mean I need to take it back in to get this software update?

 

How do I tell if I'm on the latest software?

 

Can I download it from the net and update it via USB?

 

Please help - I need to park it outside a cafe tomorrow morning and I don't want to be seen stalling it!!

I honestly don't know what is wrong with you folks, the effort to get one fixed, just don't bother, get a new one!

 

Warranties, and repairs are for the peasantry...

It's taken 3 years for someone to.. take their foot off the accelerator and come to a stop, in order to find this bug? ;)
