Ferrari issues two recalls affecting seven modelsby Ronan Glon
The limited-edition LaFerrari Aperta is one of the seven.
Even a high-end automaker like Ferrari isn't immune to recalls. The Prancing Horse issued two separate recalls that cover a wide variety of cars, including the limited-edition LaFerrari Aperta.
In a recall bulletin, Ferrari explained the 488 GTB, the 488 Spider, the 488 Pista, the GTC4 Lusso, the GTC4 Lusso T, the 812 Superfast, and the LaFerrari Aperta (pictured) are fitted with a faulty fuel vapor separator. It could crack, which would cause a fuel leak that could lead to a costly fire. 2,150 cars from the 2017 to the 2019 model years are affected by the problem.
Ferrari will fix the problem by replacing the fuel vapor separator. The campaign will begin on April 14, 2019.
The second recall affects the GTC4 Lusso and the GTC4 Lusso T. 582 cars made between the 2017 and 2019 model years are equipped with faulty door handles that might not open from the outside . Ferrari will replace the door locks and cables, according to a separate recall bulletin published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The campaign will also begin on April 14, 2019.
This isn't the first time a super-luxury brand has issued a recall. In 2018, Lamborghini recalled 11 examples of the ultra-rare Centenario because the car's certification label listed the wrong gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). That same year, Bugatti recalled two examples of the Chiron because their airbag modules were installed in the wrong position.
