Ferrai recalls 23,555 vehicles over brakes

Ferrari may be a prestigious manufacturer, but its models are not immune to breakdowns. The prancing horse builder must recall no less than 23,555 vehicles in the USA due to a brake problem. Several models are affected, even the Ferrari 430 produced between 2005 and 2009.

  • Ferrari 430
  • Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
  • Ferrari California
  • Ferrari 612
  • Ferrari FF
  • Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
  • Ferrari LaFerrari
  • Ferrari California T
  • Ferrari F60 America
  • Ferrari F12 TDF
  • Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
  • Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
  • Ferrari GTC4T
  • Ferrari Portofino
  • Ferrari 812
  • Ferrari 488 Pista
  • Ferrari F8 Tributo
  • Ferrari Roma

NHTSA, the US federal highway safety agency, writes:

The brake fluid reservoir cap may not bleed properly, creating a vacuum inside the brake fluid reservoir and causing a brake fluid leak which may lead to partial or total loss of brake function .

Ferrari is preparing to send letters to US owners as early as September 24, 2022. It is requested that the Ferrari be taken to a dealership so that a technician can replace the brake fluid reservoir cap. This operation is of course free for customers.

It is worth remembering that in April 2022, the manufacturer issued a similar recall in China where 2222 models had to be inspected. Long before, in October 2021, Ferrari announced that 9,985 vehicles had to be checked in the USA because of a brake fluid leak.

These inconveniences did not prevent Ferrari from achieving a record second quarter. Its sales increased by 28.7% and his turnover increased by 24.9%. Everything therefore seems to be going well for Ferrari, which is preparing the arrival of the Purosangue whose deliveries will begin next year.
