Recalls: Lamborghini Aventador for headlamp aim, Dodge Durango for mislabeled stickers

They're so minor as not to matter.

Lamborghini is recalling 144 Aventador models to realign the headlamps, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The new supercar's headlamps can only be aimed horizontally and not vertically, which could potentially dazzle drivers and cause a crash. We're not sure how this actually could happen, as the Aventador is about the same height of a typical guardrail, well below the eyes of most other drivers. But starting on Dec. 17, dealerships will disable the ability to aim the lamps horizontally and enable them to be aligned vertically. Kanye West and other hotshots can call Lamborghini at 1-866-681-6276.

Dodge is recalling 734 Durango models to stick new labels on the inside of the driver's door. The current labels on certain 2013 models overstate the vehicle's actual seating capacity, which could compel someone to overcrowd the vehicle. Of course, while the new sticker can't stop fools from overcrowding their Durangos, it will stop potential lawsuits. In America, that's all that matters.

OK, by a show of hands, how many of us actually check the door sticker to find out a vehicle's passenger capacity??  Anybody?  How many of us (if we are really concerned about a vehicle's passenger capacity) just check the number of safety belts?  Thought so.  I guess the lawyers have to do something to justify their jobs...
