Ferrari Expands Airbag Recall for 2013 US Models

A recent recall by Ferrari concerning a variety of 2013 model-year vehicles sold in the US has been expanded to include a further 826 vehicles. The concern is over a certain type of airbag inflator, in which the propellant can become dangerous in use, resulting in sharp metal fragments potentially striking the driver in the event of deployment.

It is unusual for a Ferrari recall to come about, yet the company’s legendary customer service and attention to quality and detail has resulted in them necessarily recalling these vehicles – models are listed below for your information – for rectification.

Further Models Included

Owners of the models affected will be contacted by Ferrari, who will replace the possibly faulty components free of charge. This is a further recall on top of that which was first made in March, 2018.

Models that will be recalled include the following, all being year 2013 models: Ferrari California, 458 Italia, 458 Spider, Ferrari FF and F12 Berlinetta.

The recall applies to cars sold in the following states of the USA: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Contacting Customer Service

Although Ferrari has stated it will contact owners to facilitate the recall, any concerned Ferrari drivers can contact Ferrari customer services in the USA on 1-866-551-2828. The Ferrari number for the recall is 63.

It is best to stop driving your Ferrari if it is among those being recalled, and wait for Ferrari to rectify the problem.
