The iconic 007 car maker Aston Martin is recalling roughly 5,000 cars in the U.S. for issues including a faulty power train.

According to documents provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the malfunctioning power train can cause the transmission park pawl — the part responsible for placing the car in park mode (P) — to fail. As a result, a seemingly parked vehicle could slide down a slope resulting in an unexpected crash. The recall involves the following luxury models: DB9, DBS, Rapide, Virage and Vanquish. The DB9 and DBS cars are included for hazardous battery cables prone to a risk of fire if damaged. Furthermore, the British sports car manufacturer will recall more than 1,500 cars in China after reviewing security risks.

While a small amount compared to others like Mercedes half a million recall, this may damper excitement over the all-new 2019 Aston Martin Vantage launch.
