Takata Airbag Recall: Ferraris Affected Too!

Written By:

Japanese airbag manufacturer Takata has been in the news for a while now due to defective airbags that spray shrapnel when deployed. This could not only injure a person, but also kill them.

There have been a long list of vehicles that have been recalled due to this and the latest manufacturer that has shown concern and is recalling cars is Ferrari. Yes, the Italian luxury carmaker has issued a recall of 2,600 vehicles globally, made between December 19th, 2014, and April 29th, 2015.

Ferrari North America has issued a recall and that applies for all the models, namely the 458 Italia, 458 Spider, 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, the California T, FF, F12 Berlinetta, and even the LaFerrari.

According to a report by NHTSA, affected cars boast an "estimated percentage with defect" of "100 percent."

A press release by the company stated: "The affected vehicles may be equipped with a driver side air bag module that was improperly assembled. This can cause the airbag to deploy in a rotated orientation."

FNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front driver's side airbag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 30, 2015. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service as well.
