LONDON (AP) — British luxury carmaker Aston Martin says it is recalling 17,590 sports cars because of a problem with the accelerator pedal molding.

The company said Wednesday there had not been any accidents or injuries stemming from the fault, which can cause the engine to idle unexpectedly.

The global recall will affect all of the company's left-hand drive cars made between late 2007 and the end of 2013. Right -hand drive cars made between May 2012 and December 2013 also will be recalled.

The new Vanquish model is not affected.

The company says molding from a Chinese supplier was found to be defective.

The Aston Martin is regarded as one of the world's finest sports car and has long benefited from its association with the James Bond films.
