March, 2021

 

Dear Ferrari Dealer:

Ferrari has decided that a problem which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in Model Year 2018, 2019, and 2020 Ferrari 812 Superfast VIN No. 221398 to 257977.

 

The vehicles involved are equipped with incorrect bonding of the rear window that may lead to decreased long-term adhesion of the rear window. This defect was potentially caused by an error in the supplier production concerning the non-cleaned glass bonding area on bodywork. As a result, the rear window glass could fully detach from the vehicle, creating a road hazard and increasing the safety-risk of a crash for following traffic. We want to assure you that our clients’ safety is our priority, and we are committed to correcting this condition in their vehicles.

 

IMPORTANT

Ferrari will be notifying ALL affected MY 2018, 2019, and 2020 vehicle owners nationwide with a letter indicating that the vehicle must be brought in immediately and the replacement parts will be installed free of charge.

 

Owners may contact Ferrari North America at (201) 816-2668; Ferrari’s campaign number for this recall is C24000073.

 

You must order the necessary part for each vehicle. Upon completion of the repair, we will reimburse you for the labor necessary to carry out this campaign under the normal warranty system.

 

It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the recall campaign is completed.
