Is it possible that one of the finest constructed automobiles in all of history is being recalled? Yeah, it’s true. And if you own one of these Ferraris, you may want to have it fixed before it catches fire!
Two safety recalls for Ferrari vehicles have been spotted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. Both recalls are dated February 14, 2019, and affect a total of 2,732 cars that span to almost the entire Ferrari range from as far as 2017 model year cars.
The first recall (number 67) affects certain 2017-2019 GTC4Lusso and 2018-2019 GTC4Lusso T vehicles. According to the NHTSA document, Ferrari is recalling these cars due to defective doors. The “tension on the door lock mechanism may result in the vehicle’s door being unable to be opened by using the external door handle.”
On the other hand, the second recall (number 69) affects a wider range of Ferrari vehicles. According to NHTSA, the fuel vapor separator of certain 2017 LaFerrari Aperta, 2018-2019 488 GTB, GTC4Lusso T, GTC4Lusso, 488 Spider, 812 Superfast, and 2019 488 Pista vehicles could potentially crack which could lead to a fuel leak. This fault may increase the risk of fire in these vehicles.
Here are the exact words of the defect: “The vehicles involved are equipped with a fuel vapor separator which, due to a manufacturing fault caused by the supplier, may cause the fuel to evaporate and the vehicle to ignite.”
