Potential Number of Units Affected: 85
All Products Associated with this Recall
2014 – 2015
Manufacturer: Ferrari North America, Inc.
Ferrari North America, Inc. (FNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 LaFerrari vehicles manufactured May 15, 2014, to March 4, 2015. In the event of a tire puncture, the affected vehicles will display the incorrect warning message of “Low Tyre Pressure-Max speed 50 mph” instead of the correct message “Low Tyre Pressure-Do not proceed.” As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.”
The incorrect message may cause the driver to continue driving on a punctured tire, causing a loss of vehicle control, and increasing the risk of a crash.
FNA will notify owners, and dealers will update the tire pressure monitoring system software to give the correct reading, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact FNA customer service at 1-866-551-2828. FNA’s number for this recall is 56.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
