2015 Ferrari California T, LaFerrari Among Vehicles Recalled for Airbag Problem


WASHINGTON Ferrari North America is recalling 814 coupes and convertibles, including the 2015 Ferrari California T and LaFerrari, because the driver-side airbag module was improperly assembled, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia, 458 Spider, 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, FF and F12 Berlinetta are also included in the recall.

The defective airbag, made by auto supplier Takata, may deploy in a rotated orientation.

"In the event of a crash, the deployment of the driver's airbag in a rotated orientation increases the risk of injury," said NHTSA in its recall summary.

The affected cars were built from December 19, 2014 to April 29, 2015.

Ferrari "is unaware of any accidents or inquiries related to this issue to date," wrote Krista Florin, a Ferrari spokeswoman in response to a query from Edmunds on Friday.

Ferrari dealers will replace the front driver's airbag module. The recall is expected to begin on July 30. Owners can contact Ferrari customer service at 1-866-551-2828.

Edmunds says: Ferrari is in the process of notifying owners about this recall. If you own one of these cars, it's time to make a service appointment with your dealer.
