2014-'15 Ferrari LaFerrari Recalled To Fix Software and Headrest Problems

WASHINGTON Ferrari North America is recalling the 2014-'15 Ferrari LaFerrari supercar in two separate actions to fix problems with the tire-pressure monitoring system software and headrests, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The first recall affects 85 2014-'15 LaFerraris with L32 seats as standard equipment for the passenger seat and as optional equipment for the driver seat.

"In a crash, the headrests of L32 seats may not absorb the required amount of energy," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "Headrests that do not absorb the required amount of energy can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash."

Ferrari dealers will replace the headrests. The recall will begin sometime in June.

In the second recall, the tire-pressure monitoring system may display an incorrect warning message in the event of a tire puncture.

"The incorrect message may cause the driver to continue driving on a punctured tire, causing loss of vehicle control, and increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said.

Ferrari dealers will update the tire-pressure monitoring system software to give the correct reading. The recall will begin sometime in June.

Ferrari did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries or accidents linked to the recall.

In both recalls, the affected vehicles were built from May 15, 2014 to March 4, 2015.
Owners can contact Ferrari customer service at 1-866-551-2828.

Edmunds says: It's time to make a service appointment with your dealer if you own one of these cars.
