Ferrari Recalls California, 458 Italia and Spider, FF, F12berlinetta Over Defective Takata Airbags
Ferrari is recalling various Ferrari vehicles from model years 2009 to 2013 for faulty airbags manufactured by Takata.
According to the Italian carmaker, if the passenger-side front airbag is deployed, a defective inflator produced by Takata can send sharp metal fragments toward the vehicle occupants, resulting in injury or death.
The affected model years and Ferrari cars are the following:
Model Year 2009: California
Model Year 2010: California and 458 Italia
Model Year 2011: California and 458 Italia
Model Year 2012: 458 Italia, 458 Spider, FF, and California
Model Year 2013: 458 Italia, 458 Spider, FF, F12berlinetta, and California
Ferrari owners can check if their vehicle is affected by the recall by checking its VIN number here. While Ferrari is reportedly unaware of any such incidents in Ferrari vehicles, it reminds its clients that this doesn’t lessen the urgency of the recall.
“Replacement airbags are now available,” the carmaker said in a statement. “Please contact your nearest Authorized Ferrari Dealer to make an appointment to have the FREE repair performed on your vehicle.”
