(Newser) – Bad news for the 1%: Italian automaker Lamborghini is recalling some Gallardo models because power steering fluid can leak and catch fire. The recall affects about 1,500 Gallardo Coupe and Spyder autos, from model years 2004 to 2006. The cars start at about $200,000, so chances are you don't own one. Owners will be notified this month, and dealers will update the power steering system free of charge.

Better get that fixed fast. Can't have any McMansions burning down. Be too much like having a Volt.

$200,000 for a car that leaks and catches fire? No thanks, I can get one with those features for $1,000 or less in the want ads.
