NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V341
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,826

Manufacturer: Ferrari North America, Inc.



Ferrari North America, Inc. (Ferrari) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Ferrari California vehicles manufactured February 16, 2009, to July 8, 2011, and model year 2010-2011 458 Italia vehicles manufactured March 5, 2010, to July 29, 2011.

These vehicles are equipped with air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.



An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.



Ferrari will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag assembly, free of charge.

Interim owner letters were mailed July 22, 2016, and owners will be sent a second letter when parts are available.

Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 201-816-2668.

Ferrari’s number for this recall is 60.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
