Warwickshire-based Aston Martin is recalling most of its sports cars built since late 2007.
The company discovered a Chinese sub-supplier was using counterfeit plastic material in a part supplied to the carmaker.
A total of 17,590 cars, including all of its left-hand-drive models built since November 2007 and all right-hand-drive models built since May 2012, are being recalled.
The Vanquish model is not affected.
Aston Martin say safety is their priority.
