Ferrari recalls cars due to fire hazard and faulty doors

March 17, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The Ferrari service company, which will start on April 14, 2019, affects almost the entire lineup of the brand.

Information about two service companies, initiated by an Italian car manufacturer, Ferrari, has recently appeared on the website of the National Road Safety Administration.

Both reviews date back to February 14, 2019 and affect a total of 2,732 cars, which cover almost the entire Ferrari range, starting with cars of the 2017 model year.

The first review (number 67) refers to copies of the GTC4Lusso model, which were produced between 2017 and 2019, as well as GTC4Lusso in the version T (2017-2019 years of release). According to an official document, Ferrari recalls these cars due to faulty doors. “Tensioning the door lock mechanism can lead to the impossibility of opening them with the help of an external door handle.”

A total of 582 instances of the GTC4Lusso / GTC4Lusso T model, which currently travels across North America, could potentially have the above-mentioned problem. Ferrari’s representative office will begin the withdrawal on April 14, 2019, owners will be notified in advance, and dealers will be asked to replace damaged car parts for free.

The second review (number 69) affects a wider range of Ferrari cars. According to NHTSA, the LaFerrari Aperta 2017, 488 GTB, GTC4Lusso T, GTC4Lusso, 488 Spider, 812 Superfast and 2019 488 Pista may crack, which can lead to fuel leakage. Which in turn can increase the risk of fire.
