According to a series of news articles published by several national sources, Ferrari has decided to issue a recall alert on all units of 2011 and 2012 458 Italia and 2012 California Vehicles.
The official recall announcement was first released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and according to the information found in the company’s statement, these vehicles were manufactured with crankshafts that could fail unexpectedly due to a possibly incorrect machining. This issue, according to the federal agency, could render the seizing of the vehicle’s engine, which could cause the car to become inoperable without warning.
This issue, according to Ferrari, could lead to a crash if the crankshaft in these vehicles is not repaired promptly.
At this moment, the company is notifying all registered owners and according to the official recall announcement, recalled vehicle owners with any questions regarding this recall announcement should contact the manufacturer right away.
Hopefully, this recall announcement will be carried out in a successful and prompt manner and all recalled vehicles are fixed before any accidents or injuries are reported. Too often, defective vehicles cause accidents long before any recall alert is issued.
I urge you to heed this announcement if you own one of these faulty vehicles as soon as you can to ensure your family’s safety by having your car completely repaired quickly. You should never wait until you’re hurt to react.
