Additional information:

Among the 65 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Ferrari North America, Inc. (“Ferrari”) has recalled an estimated 1,870 model year 2009-2011 Ferrari California and 2010-2011 Ferrari 458 Italia vehicles that have not had their passenger frontal air bag replaced. These passenger frontal air bag modules have air bag inflators that may explode in the event of a crash due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

According to the NHTSA, an inflator explosion may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Ferrari will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag assembly with one that uses an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2018. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 1-201-816-2668. Ferrari’s number for this recall is 60A. Please note: this recall supersedes recall 16V-341.
