Rolls-Royce has set itself apart from all of the other big automakers that have recently announced recalls, having issued one that only affects one car.

The single vehicle covered in the recall is a 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost that was made on Jan. 23, 2014, and the issue stems from its airbags, according to Autoblog.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a recall notice that the vehicle's front air bags may not deploy as they're supposed to when there's a side-impact crash, creating a safety issue for the people inside, TIME reported.

"The affected vehicle has thorax air bags fitted to both front seats that may fail to meet the side impact performance requirements for the front seat occupants," the NHTSA wrote. "As such, this vehicle may fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 214, 'Side Impact Protection.'"

The letter also directs owners to call BMW of North America, parent company of Rolls-Royce, to make sure their car isn't the one in the recall. The automaker will replace the faulty airbags for free, which seems like a good deal, considering the 2015 Ghost has a base price of $250,000.
