Recalls for 2012 Ferrari California Convertible GT
2012 FERRARI CALIFORNIA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 18V381000
Component: AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL
Manufacturer: Ferrari North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 08/30/2011 - 05/17/2012
Potential Units Affected: 1507
Defect Description:
Ferrari North America, Inc. (Ferrari) is recalling certain 2012 Ferrari California, 458 Italia, 458 Spider, and FF vehicles that have not already had their passenger frontal air bag replaced. These passenger frontal air bag modules have air bag inflators that may explode in the event of a crash due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
Consequence:
An inflator explosion may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Action to take:
Ferrari will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag assembly with one that uses an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall began on July 19, 2018. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 1-201-816-2668. Ferrari's number for this recall is 61. Note: This recall supersedes recall 17V-018.
