James Bond's classic car is now hotter than ever. Aston Martin has recalled 7,256 vehicles due to faulty electronic modules in their front seat heaters, according to CarBuzz.

The defect can prevent the front passenger seat heaters from turning off. The seat can become hot enough to overheat and smolder, causing injury to passenger.

The material of the seats meets flammability requirements and there have been no reported cases of the seats catching fire.

The affected cars include the 2006-2014 model years of Aston Martin's DB9, V12 Vantage, V8 Vantage, DBS, and Virage.

Aston Martin will install an additional device to disrupt power from faulty modules free of charge for current owners. The component acts as an additional monitor and will detect a malfunction and interrupt the power supply to keep the seat from overheating.
