More than 800 Ferraris in the U.S. have been recalled for an air bag issue.
Ferrari has announced a recall affecting a total of 814 exotics in the U.S. that includes numerous models from the 2015 model year: 458, California T, F12 Berlinetta, FF and LaFerrari. According to the Italian automaker, the affected vehicles were manufactured between December 19, 2014 to April 29, 2015 and may be equipped with a driver side airbag module that was improperly assembled. As a result, the airbag could deploy in a rotated orientation, increasing the risk of an injury.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s explanation of the recall notes that the affected vehicles might have a “relevant combination of insufficient gluing of the leather on the driver’s side airbag cover and the possible rotated installation of the driver’s airbag cushion in the airbag module.”
Dealerships will replace the front driver’s side airbag module free of charge and the recall is expected to begin on July 30, 2015.
