Ferrari recalls 23,555 cars for possible brake failure


Ferrari North America is recalling a total of 23,555 cars including models dating back to 2005, over the possibility of a brake failure. Owners will receive an email notification on September 24, 2022, and the customer care number for this recall is 1-201-816-2668.

Explaining the problem, Ferrari said that the brake fluid reservoir cap may not vent properly, creating a vacuum inside the brake fluid reservoir, resulting in a brake fluid leak that may lead to a partial or total loss of braking function. Dealers will inspect and replace the brake fluid reservoir cap if necessary and update the software, free of charge, of course.

A total of 63 models are affected and the following is the list:

Model Year
430 2005-2009
488 Pista 2019-2020
612 2010-2011
612 Scaglietti 2005-2011
812 2018-2022
California 2009-2014
California T 2015-2017
F12 Berlinetta 2013-2017
F12 TDF 2017
F60 America 2016
F8 Spider 2020-2022
F8 Tributo 2020-2022
FF 2012-2016
GTC4 Lusso 2018-2020
GTC4 Lusso T 2018-2019
LaFerrari 2013-2015
LaFerrari Aperta 2017
Portofino 2019-2022
Roma 2021-2022

Does this mean that the Roma has the same brake fluid reservoir cap as that of a 2005 430? 🤔 Either way, I think owners of the above vehicles should check for any “low brake fluid” warning message in the instrument display or infotainment display, and if not, drive slowly and carefully anyway until the issue is rectified. I would recommend not driving ’em at all until the issue is rectified.
