(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.
