Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator May Rupture

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

 

Summary

Ferrari North America, Inc. (Ferrari) is recalling certain 2012 California, 458 Italia, 458 Spider, and FF vehicles sold, or ever registered, in 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.

These vehicles are equipped with certain 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 deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

 

Remedy

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

Ferrari plans to send an interim owner letter to owners beginning March 13, 2017, and a second letter will be sent when parts are available.

Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 1-866-551-2828.

Ferrari’s number for this recall is 61.
