A Ferrari offers non-stop fun, that is, unless your brakes break, something that is definitely not fun at all, no matter what car you’re driving.
Brake failure is a possibility in thousands of Ferraris from 2005 through the current year. As a result, the affected cars were all recalled.
The recall, notices of which should be mailed on September 24, includes 23,555 Ferraris sold in the United States:
2005-2011 612 Scaglietti
2009-2017 California and California T
2013-2017 F12 Berlinetta and F12 TDF
2016 F60 America
2017 LaFerrari Aperta
2017-2020 GTC4 Lusso and GTC4 Lusso T.
2019-2020 488 Runway
2020-2022 F8 Tributo and Spider
In these cars, the brake fluid reservoir cap may not vent properly, in which case a vacuum can form inside the brake fluid reservoir. This could cause brake fluid to leak, which in turn could lead to a partial or complete loss of brake function.
The solution involves replacing the brake fluid reservoir cap and updating the software to provide a new low brake fluid warning message, which can be done at a local Ferrari dealership and at no cost to the owner .
