The Ferrari 458 is being recalled again, but not for catching on fire this time.

A small group of Ferrari 458 models, as well as convertible California models have been issued a recall notice by the Italian exotic automaker due to an issue with the engine crankshaft. In total, 206 cars did not receive a properly finished crankshaft, which could result in excessive vibration and eventually damage to the engine.

Owners are being contacted and will be asked to visit their Ferrari dealer in order for the necessary recall work to be done.
