Has Ferrari Recalled Nearly All Its Models?
2022 is shaping up to be an eventful year for a number of automotive companies due to various vehicle issues
A few weeks ago major automakers such as Audi, Land Rover, and Tesla announced defects in seat belts, and now it’s Ferrari’s turn. The reliability of the Italian brand is not only on everyone’s lips for its poor performances in Formula 1 races, but also for the efficiency of its high-end cars.
The Cavallino Rampante has recalled all vehicles manufactured since 2005, a total of 23,550 models. The reason? A latent leak of brake fluid would mean a total loss of braking. The incident, coming from such powerful machines, is a major problem.
The NHTSA shared last a detailed report showing the safety problems in the braking system of Ferrari cars last July 26. According to the document, the fluid reservoir cap could cause a gap, leading to possible leakage of the fluid.
The luxury car company will provide owners with more details about the overhaul on September 24, 2022. So far, the brand advises frequently checking the brake fluid reservoir.
The list of affected models is extensive and includes limited or special editions such as LaFerrari or Ferrari F60 America. Some cars impacted are Ferrari F430, Ferrari California, Ferrari FF, 488 Pista, and Ferrari Roma.
Takata’s Airbag Problems Continue
In addition to the incidents caused by the braking system, Ferrari has more serious problems to solve: replacing the defective Takata airbags. The Italian brand has recently issued a statement recalling some models. The objective: replace the passenger seat airbag.
As reported on official Ferrari forums, many owners have already begun full repairs. The process involves the removal of the glove box and passenger side cover in order to perform the airbag replacement.
