The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a large-scale recall of Ferrari supercars: 23,555 cars have been sent to service centers for inspection and repair. NHTSA clarifies that we are talking about a possible leakage of brake fluid, which can lead to a decrease in braking efficiency or even a complete failure of the brakes, which, in turn, increases the risk of an accident. The new recall affects a wide range of models, from 17-year-old Ferrari 430 to Roma 2022.

Owners will be invited to service centers on September 24. As part of the recall campaign, specialists will check and, if necessary, replace the lid of the brake fluid tank, and at the same time assess the level of brake fluid. As always in such cases, repairs will be carried out at the expense of the automaker.

Below is a complete list of models that are subject to recall:

This is not the first Ferrari recall in 2022. At the end of May, a similar defect was detected in 2,222 copies of 458 Italia, 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, 458 Spider, 488 GTB, and 488 Spider produced between March 2, 2010, and March 12, 2019. Then the owners of supercars in China were invited to the services.

In 2021, Ferrari warned about the malfunction of all 458 and 488 supercars produced over 10 years — they also had a brake fluid leak. At that time, the automaker had not yet figured out how to fix the defect, so owners of potentially dangerous cars were advised to refrain from traveling until invited to repair.
